Posted on December 13, 2008. Filed under: 1 |

A Kenyan woman in Austin, TX was arrested and charged yesterday for abandoning four children under the age of 3 to run errands.

Edel Chepkorir Sum, 39, was involved in a fender bender while she was out on her errands Monday. As police were going about their routine at the accident scene, she told them that she needed to “leave immediately because the kids were at home.”

Police at the scene got curious, she became evasive, panicked, called her neighbor to look after the four children she left at home because she was involved in an accident and could not get to them immediately.

The neighbor called police and the officer at the scene got a call confirming that there were children left alone at her residence which is licensed to care for three children.

Sum faces four felony counts of abandoning or endangering a child with a possible jail time 80 years if found guilty.


Butdoisay comment.80 years? Why does America exergerate its jail terms?Would this really be fair?
