Charges to be dropped against AZ mom who left kids in car
Neither homeless or unemployed. Did she get over on all our sympathies? I hope her kids mean enough to her to follow the court's orders and do right by her children with the money that was collected for her.SCOTTSDALE, AZ - Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery says he'll dismiss child abuse charges against an Arizona mother accused of leaving her children in a hot car while she interviewed for a job. That's if she completes parenting and substance abuse treatment programs and establishes education and child care trust fund accounts for her children. Shanesha Taylor, 35, agreed to the term details in the state's motion for suspension of prosecution. Montgomery said documentation of the trust accounts must be submitted to the Maricopa County Attorney's Office for review to ensure the conditions are met and that the accounts are appropriately funded. If Taylor fails to comply with the terms of the agreement, the Maricopa County Attorney's Office will proceed with prosecution of the charges filed against her. Taylor, whose case has garnered national attention on social media, was granted the supervised visits with her 2-year-old and 6-month-old sons by a Maricopa County Superior Court commissioner while she was awaiting a Sept. 4 trial on two felony charges of child abuse. Taylor previously pleaded not guilty to the charges. Scottsdale police arrested Taylor after a witness heard a child crying inside a Dodge Durango parked in an office complex parking lot at 9700 N. 91st St. in Scottsdale about 12:30 p.m. on March 20. The witness said the SUV was parked directly in the sun with the engine off, the doors closed and four windows slightly open.
