    SC - Amir Jennings, 18 mo., Columbia, Nov 2011

    Mother held on $150,000 bond. Doesn't look good for Amir.

    Columbia police say they have arrested a 22-year-old mother after she lied to officers about the location of her 18-month-old son, who has been missing for several weeks.

    What is it with these parents and young kids lately? For some of them, it seems they cannot cope with an almost or a 2 year old. Yes, they have tantrums and it can test your patience, but you manage and get through it. Perhaps this isn't the reason but it seems the most likely in some of the cases I've read lately.

    Prayers that this little guy is found safe...but it looks daunting.

    “The only consistency about everything she has told us is in the inconsistency,” Police Chief Randy Scott said.

    The mother of a missing 18-month-old has been charged with cruelty to children following her arrest after Columbia police say she gave false and inconsistent information about her son’s whereabouts.

    This is stated in one of the above news articles...

    I'm trying to figure out how a cruelty charge is brought forth by lying to LE. (thanks for the info kseal!) Just trying to puzzle out how one equates a charge of the other.

    I guess, in South Carolina, it's not ok to lie about your missing children. Hope that trend spreads.

    I'm trying to figure out what statute they are charging her with and what the possible sentence of that is, and if it might interfere later on with any other charges should they want to bring them forth.

    Yes I hope the trend that it's not okay to lie about your missing kids to LE spreads too.

    But that's not the direction I'm looking at this....but thanks for the comment on my question.

    ETA: for some reason I can't find it in the South Carolina statutes. I find cruelty to animals but not children. I'll dig more and if I find it I'll post it here for anyone else that is interested. Does SC not have a lying to LE statute during an investigation? If so, which carries a heftier penalty if conviction?
