Children are some of the most vulnerable humans.
That’s why we have special laws that make neglecting, abusing, or endangering them illegal. An Ohio woman recently broke one of these laws in a big way.
Andrea Mucciarone of Conneaut took her toddler to a football game on October 28, and while there, she allowed something unthinkable to happen.
Mucciarone brought a sippy cup full of vodka to a Conneaut High School game. She didn’t realize that her 23-month-old son was drinking from it.
Soon, her child couldn’t stand. Relatives noticed and rushed him to the hospital, where he was treated. Police arrived at the hospital shortly after.
Mucciarone was charged with child endangerment and plead not guilty.
