    Children in Trunk

    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A woman who pleaded guilty to locking her young children in her car trunk because they misbehaved has been given probation and a four-year suspended jail sentence. Tamatha M. Parker, of Culpeper, pleaded guilty in October to two counts of child abuse in Fredericksburg Circuit Court.

    The two-year jail time for each count was suspended on condition of her good behavior for 10 years. Parker will serve an undetermined period of probation, take a parenting class and undergo substance abuse treatment, Fredericksburg prosecutor Travis Bird said. The charges stemmed from a June 25 incident during which an off-duty police officer confronted her in a Wal-Mart parking lot. The temperature that day was about 90 degrees.

    Parker, 34, admitted putting the boy and girl, both 5, in the trunk because they were acting up in the store. She told police she was just trying to scare the children and didn't plan to leave the parking lot with them in the trunk. Police didn't arrest her right after the incident, in part because the children became upset about the possibility of their mother going to jail.

    Just think how upset they will be when she chooses to harm them in other ways. Child abuse is a base for more heinous crimes.

    Yep. And I'm wondering if she still has custody of those children or if they are in the care of a family member or the Child Protectives Services Agency in this area?
