KENOSHA, Wis (WSAU) A 20-year-old mother and an 18-year-old father are facing charges for leaving their infant child unattended in a car for 20-minutes. The incident happened in late June outside an adult bookstore in Libertyville, Illinois. The family is from Pleasant Prairie. Criminal charges were filed against them on Wednesday.
A police report says the 9-month-old boy was left inside the locked car for at least 20 minutes. His parents were shopping for sex-toys inside. The couple said they left their son inside the car because children under-18 weren't allowed in the store.
A police report says the child suffered no long-term health problems from the incident.
