And her excuse was, "I went in to use the restroom". Now tell me why in the world, would it had not been easier and quicker to stop at a gas station?

I guess she had a reason for going to the courthouse,not just for going to the bathroom i would think.

Actually the girl works for Dr. Arla. The guy is a sex offender. He was probably in the courthouse concerning that. The 15 month old is the child of both of these idiots. The infant also "supposedly" has RSV and takes breathing treatments. The girl tells so many lies it's hard to keep up with them. She's always comes in late or misses work and you just don't know what to believe. She is in a custody case over the 8 year old. The child's real father doesn't want the 8 year old around the sex offender. Guess he got custody of the child now. She was probably in the courthouse with him. Her own family wants nothing to do with her until she loses the sex offender. She would rather be homeless with the sex offender than provide a home for the kids. Oh did i mention she just got evicted from village apartments. Yeah how own family won't let her into their home unless she dumps the sex offender. Talk about mixed up priorities

Seen interview on news tonight with the guy. What an idiot! He says he went in the court house to get some papers and she followed him in so she could use the restroom. Swears he didnt know it was illegal to leave your kids in a hot car unattended for a few minutes. Oh my what idiots they are. Would love to here the interview with the 8 year old.

I'll bet that this couple wished that they lived in the east end. There you can bake babies in the back seats of cars and receive sympathy for your loss. Hell, in the east end you will probably be compensated for your loss and tax payers will be tapped for the cost of cleaning your car. And people on topix want to point fingers at those in other parts of Louisville. There is something very wrong with people here.
"Those effed up people in the west end and in Bullitt county, they're bad. Oh those poor, unfortunate folks in the east, losing their child like that. I think we should throw money at them and have a benefit concert. Hell, take one of my grandchildren, maybe you'll have better luck with this one." Just shut the hell up with this shit.

I was wondering where he was a sex offender at? I looked at the ky sex offender list and didn't see him.

I can't find the guy either. Hopefully this isn't all hear say. Seriously though what is wrong with these losers. I wouldn't even think to leave my dogs in the car for two minutes in this weather, much less a child.

Does anyone know how to find out online the name and phone number of the owner of a building in Louisville? It has a business in it and the business owner leases it. Thanks

He's not a registered sex offender. It was one of the many stories heard if you worked at Dr. Arla's. Of course, she told so many stories it was hard to know what was a lie and what was the truth. Her story about him was he was a sex offender. She almost lost their son to cps because of him being a sex offender. Her daughter's father was taking her to court because he did not want the daughter anywhere around the boyfriend. She just got evicted from Village Apartments. Her family will not let her stay with him until she loses the boyfriend.

I wonder if I went to the court house to get my driver`s license and had my Wife and Granddaughter with me and my wife told me they would stay in the car because the baby was asleep and five minutes later she went in to use the restroom and left the baby alone; why would I be arrested?

On the same token,I was wondering if a law is written that specifies what temperature is considered legally comfortable for leaving a passenger in the car.Especially considering that it wasn't really even all that hot on the day this incident went down.And honestly,,,I caught that too.What you was saying about dad going in the court house,,,under the impression that a sufficient chaperone was in the car doing what they was supposed to be doing.Seems to me like it's an obvious call for the judge.Stripe the mom with a bullwhip and or the rubber hose,get the dad back home as quickly as possible,,,and reprimand the police officer responsible for such a poor display in judgment.

the guy is not a sex offender. HES AN IDIOT! but not a sex offender, the reason they almost lost their son to cps was bc he is being accused of beating his other son his 2 year old. he has 2 baby mommas. and thats y her family kicked her out and the 8 year old daughter is living with her dad. THEY ARE BOTH IDIOTS!!! wish they had stayed in jail.

Why in this day and age would anyone leave children unattended in a car for any reason. It's too easy for anyone to open the door and grab them.

It was definitely a display of poor judgment and parenting skills,,,but what about the cop who locked up the dad? Mom was in the car when dad walked in the courthouse(no one disputes that).Many folks have done this same thing numerous times.Does this strike anyone else as strange that dad had to have his smiling face on the news as well,,,or only me? Also,I really would like to know what the legal mandated temperature actually is,,,before they won't hang you for closing your child's door before opening your own in a parking lot??? All that aside,I agree with you one-hundred percent.It's crazy out there anymore.To answer your question though,for many people who do it,,,it reflects how they truly feel for their children.As for the other thirty-five percent,,,it's stupidity as well as ignorance.They honestly don't know any better.
