Desiree Jackson cited after kids left alone

YOUNGSTOWN

A Franklin Street woman was charged with driving under suspension and child endangering after police say she left her four children home by themselves Friday morning.

Police were called to the home in the 1100 block of Franklin Street about 10:05 a.m. because of a 911 hangup call. When an officer arrived, he saw three children and a pit bull through a window.

The officer got one of the kids to let him inside, and they told him their parents were not home. The officer looked through the home and found a cellphone number for their mother, Desiree Jackson, 23, and called her to come home.

Reports said Jackson admitted not having a driver’s license and said she went to a nearby store and was planning on being gone only a couple of minutes. She said she did not want to “lug” the children around, which is why she left them home.

Reports said the kids are 5, 3, 2 and 10 months. The youngest was in a crib in the middle of the living room, and the 2-year-old was the one who called 911 and hung up, according to the report.

Mahoning County Children Services was notified.

The report states that there was plenty of food in the home, but officers did notice rats outside gnawing on trash that was next to the front door.

Jackson is scheduled to be arraigned in Youngstown Municipal Court on Monday.

* They should find the father(s) and charge him/them with leaving all of them "behind". Thosef'ers get to leave altogether and nobody mentions them at all. Is he ( are they) at work? Give "lil desiree some damn $$ so she can a sitter every once in a while. 4 kids = exhausting...

You bet taking care of 4 kids is a full time never ending job but you never leave babies and toddlers alone even for a few minutes.

As for the father(s) they are just as responsible for the safety and well being of their kids as the mother.
If this is a case of absentee fathers they should be tracked down and held as accountable as the mother of those kids.

No man has the right to bail out on the children they produce.
Any man who helps make a child has an obligation to support that child weather they live in the home or not....no excuses!!

It is grossly unfair that these dead beat fathers just skate off leaving their responsibility and obligations on the mothers shoulders providing no support or relief.
Find these scumbags,make them pay and be responsible !
