However, when she appeared at the courthouse to turn herself in, she was later accused of leaving her children in a locked car with the windows rolled up. She is now charged with three counts of contributing to the delinquency or abuse of a child after for the abandonment outside of the Henrico County Courthouse on Monday, June 8, 2015.
The police found the children and gave them water and snacks. They later contacted the father and turned them over to him.
