recently in Ohio, a woman left her 2 year old child in the car who later died. after reviewing the case, the procecution decided not to procecute saying that no crime was commited. it was said that the act was reckless, not negligence so they could not charge her with negligent homicide.

just curious to what some other parents reactions were.

Reckless: state of being careless and rash when doing something.
Negligent: To neglect what needs to be done.
Well, I think a 2-year-old needs to be taken out of a vehicle when the mother leaves the car. I think it was VERY negligent to leave the child by him/her self in the car.
My husband and I have 5 children, and never forgot any of them in the car!

Negligent Homicide.
Any child care provider or decent parents knows it is virtually impossible to forget a child in a vehicle. I think it is a flat out lie when I read/hear that someone FORGOT their child in a vehicle. And if they truly did, then what drugs were they on? Sorry for the rant but people like that really upset me to no extent.

I have always pursued the matter of negligence or recklessness anytime I work a fatality crash. It is always left up to the grand jury to dismiss the case or bound it over to circuit court. That way, I have done my job and left it up to society. It is commonly know as CYA.

The Laws are Different from state to state, In Louisiana you can Leave 35 people in a Nursing home with a category 5 Hurricane Baring Down (Nursing Home at Sea Level) with a 28 foot storm surge, Let all the people Die and walk away Scott Free. A Doctor and 3 Nurses Trapped in a hospital Doing their best with Know Electric, water or food Are brought up on Murder charges Doing their Job. When the Grand Jury Refuses to indict them The So Called State Atty Gen. Decides to Charge the Dr.. He has had 8 DWI's.... Where is the Justus in that... I Moving to a Diffrent State

reckless endangerment of a child in TN requires no intent!!!!! They'd be in jail here.

I can't believe this is even a Question to the judicial system bottom line she left her child in the car period ...........on top of the child only being two ....................and the officer who leaves his dog gets a stiffer punishment with animal cruelty than the mom who loses her child cause of her fault ............... and like others I never forgot Ihad mt children with me ........... Love them more than life itself ..............

This woman has been driving with this little child in the back seat for the last 2 years. No, she did not forget that her child was in the car. The child was probably asleep and she didn't want to wake him or her up and took off to where she wanted to go. IDIOT!!!! I don't feel sorry for her at all. She created this mess she is in. They should prosecute her for something instead of letting her go completely. The judicial system is scaring the hell out of me.

What State was this in? Isn't there a law against leaving a child under a certain age in a car unattended? If so, then there was a law broken.

maybe you heard it differently than I,,
I heard it that her sitter picked up the child every day, this day she was to drop her child off with the sitter,,put the child in the car,,loaded her things to take to class for her students, and went on to teach as she has done everyday.
Not accustomed to dropping off her child or having her child with her, she went on with her normal day.

And she didn't see the child when she got her stuff out of the car? I don't buy it.

A few days later, the paper published that the woman had been warned twice in the recent past against leaving her child in the car. Here in Franklin County, a number of people have been criminally charged for the very same offense. Not sure why the prosecutor in Clermont County sees it differently.

Like I said no excuses the child was left by a so called responsible adult and to me I love children more than life itsself ..........................no one should ever forget that their children or someone elses child are there in the adults care no matter who it is ............................
