Woman gets bond reduced, allowed no contact with children
A Beaver Township woman who was arrested after police say she left her two children strapped in car seats in front of the television while she went to work the midnight shift was granted a reduced bond Monday.
Judge Maureen Sweeney of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court agreed to a request by the attorney for Kacee Rae Moser, 24, to lower her bond from $75,000 to $25,000 and allowing her to be placed on house arrest. Among the conditions of her bond is that Moser is not allowed to have contact with her two children or be within 1,000 feet of them, Sweeney said.
Police said she went to work at a Western Reserve Road nursing home June 16 to work the overnight shift and left her two children, 3 years and 9 months old, strapped in their car seats in front of the television.
Police found the children home alone and went to the nursing home to question Moser. She ran away from the home and was missing.
She turned herself in to police June 18. Police were initially called to the home by a woman who knew Moser was working and was concerned about the children. Police saw the children through a living-room window and broke the window to get to them.
Moser is charged with two counts each of abduction and endangering children. The children are presently in the custody of the county Children Services Board.
