Mom Charged After Allegedly Leaving Son in Hot Car While She Worked
She has been charged with child neglect.
A Florida mom has been charged with child neglect after she allegedly left her child in her car for more than an hour while she was at work, police said.
Jasmine Denis Allen, 25, reportedly parked her car in the parking lot behind the building where she worked in St. Petersburg and left her son with the windows rolled up and doors locked on Thursday, police said.
Police said Allen was inside working at a call center, AGR Group, and the boy had no way of contacting his mom inside.
A security guard spotted the boy about an hour and a half after he’d allegedly been left, according to police.
The outside temperature reached 80 degrees at the time and police said the child was drenched in sweat and his mouth was white.
Someone reportedly called an ambulance but Allen left with the child before police came, authorities said.
She was later arrested and charged with neglect.
The child was examined and said to be okay, according to a report.
Allen has since been released on $10,000 bond.
AGR Group told InsideEdition.com that Allen has since been fired.
