Charges: WI Couple Visits Sex Shop, Leaves Baby In Sweltering Car
PLEASANT PRAIRIE, Wis. (AP) – A Wisconsin couple allegedly left their baby parked in a car while they shopped for sex toys, and are now charged with child-endangerment.
The parents were shopping on June 22 at Lover’s Lane in Libertyville, Ill., said a WTJM-TV report. Libertyville police said the couple left their nine-month-old son in the sweltering car for 20 minutes without air conditioning.
Authorities said the baby was crying and sweating profusely, but doesn’t appear to have suffered any long-term effects.
The father is an 18-year-old from Kenosha, and the mother is a 20-year-old from Pleasant Prairie. They told police they left the boy in the car because no one under the age of 18 is allowed in the store.
They’re due in court August 2.
