This doesn’t sound right.
Acting on a tip, Liberty Township, Ohio, officers found a 10-year-old girl and her two-year-old sister in a room at the Motel Six after 6 p.m. The older child said that her mother was at work and expected her to be back by 10 p.m. Mom Shaina Bell was found working at a pizza shop and told officers that she usually has someone check in on her children every hour while she is at work.
Bell pleaded not guilty and is now free on bail after a hearing in Girard Municipal Court.
Did you babysit other kids when you were 10-years-old, or did you leave your kids with a 10-year-old sitter? That age is a bit young, but if you don’t have good options, does this really rise to the level of child endangerment?
