Endangering charge lodged against woman who left child in car

Published: Fri, May 8, 2009 @ 1:10 p.m.

BOARDMAN — A Youngstown woman faces an endangering children charge, accused of leaving her 11-month-old daughter in a vehicle unattended in the Southern Park Mall parking lot.

Precious Goods, 22, Woodside Avenue, was lodged in the Mahoning County jail. She is to appear Tuesday in Mahoning County court.

About 4:30 p.m. Thursday, police were called to the parking lot of JCPenney at the mall on a report of an unattended child in a car. A store employee told police she was informed about the incident by a customer and then confirmed it herself.

The employee showed an officer the car, which contained the infant alone inside. The car doors were locked and the back windows were open a few inches. The baby girl was in a car seat in the back of the car, crying. The officer opened the car door to check on the child, noting she was upset but didn’t appear to need medical attention.

Police waited between 20 and 30 minutes before the mother, Goods, approached and asked what was wrong. She said the baby had been sleeping and she didn’t want to wake her so she left her in the car while she exchanged merchandise in the store.

Goods was arrested on the misdemeanor charge and Mahoning County Children’s Services took custody of the infant.

She would have sued the mall and probably won.

When i saw the headline i thought this would be another overblow story. Don't have an arguement for Precious. She evidently doesn't have the capacity to care properly for an 11 month old. Hopefully someone in her family will take the baby as opposed to it's possible placement in a foster home.
I still say they should issue a license to have kids.

wow! That is completely inexcusable! No child should be left in a car like that, that is just common sense.

People who live in Boardman are for the most part creepy and obnoxious,and that goes for your so called police,who feel they have the right to break laws called the bill of right's.
No excuse to leave a baby in the car though,This should be a felony.

PS: if the people in the suburbs would stop buying drugs in Youngstown we would have a lot less crime!!
