Milwaukee, Wisconsin – Mother leaves 5 kids in the car while she gambles at Potawatomi Hotel & Casino

Takeshia Stanton, 27, was arrested and charged with 5 counts of neglecting a child after leaving 5 children, (two 6 year olds, 8 year old, 13 year old and a 2 month old infant) in a hot vehicle for at least 2 hours while she gambled at Potawatomi Hotel & Casino. The outside temperature was around 80 degrees when police arrived at approximately 6:30 p.m. and found the 5 children sitting inside the car with the windows closed, the air conditioning off and bottles of engine oil, antifreeze and alcohol inside the car. Police also noticed the smell of gasoline and dirty diapers coming from inside the vehicle. The children were initially spotted in the car by a man who saw them on his way inside the casino, and two hours later on his way out of the casino. According to Stanton, her mother who was staying at the hotel was meant to pick them up and look after them, but there was no record of Stanton’s mother staying at the hotel, and police were unable to contact her. Stanton has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
