Last week here in Charlotte, NC it was colder than a witch’s tit in a brass bra. I’m from up north so when I say it’s cold it’s cold.
Apparently that didn’t matter to Lastaria Brown (how do you even pronounce that?) of West Charlotte who was arrested last week on child neglect charges. It seems her 3-year-old and 18-month old were found out in the 20 something degree (F) weather in just their diapers. An 11-month-old (do the math on that one) was found to be inside the home. I couldn’t find word on where Ms. Brown was at the time but I’m hoping she wasn’t getting her hair done and if she was she needs to get her money back.
Brown was arrested back in June for similar charges when she allegedly left the kids home alone then. No word on why Brown still had the kids.
Thanks to our own Deena for the tip.
27-year-old Julie Root of East Hampton, Connecticut. was arrested and charged with risk of injury to a minor and reckless endangerment after her two boys, ages 2 and 3, were found wandering in the woods wearing nothing but diapers. Police arrived after a neighbor reported the children playing unattended by a stream. They believe that the children had been outside, alone, in the rain for at least an hour. While the ambulance was there to transport the boys to the hospital for evaluation, their brainiac birth vessel arrived on the scene. Better late than never, I guess. According to police, Root was heavily under the influence of pain medication. She claims that the children must have wandered from her home after she dozed off. DUH! She also told police that the boys’ father was home at the time that they wandered off, but he was sleeping also. Holy fuck! Does anyone in that house have any sense?? These two are another example of why there should be a test that is passed before you have children.
The children were released to the custody of their father (God help them). Mrs. Root was released on a $10,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Middlesex Superior Court on April 20.
Julie is obviously a moron. We can tell by her shirt that this is not Mother of the Year (not only the sentiment, but it’s fucking dirty as well), but you gotta give her props for wearing that shirt on the day she fucked up and went to jail. It certainly made for a better mugshot. Perhaps she could use this pic in this year’s Christmas card.
