If you leave your child in a hot car with the windows up, that child can
die from suffocation. Recently in Georgia, a father was charged with felony
murder for leaving his child in a hot car for seven hours. In this case,
the police discovered evidence which suggests that the child's death
was not an accident. The defendant in this case claims that he had no
intent to leave the child in the car.
If you leave your child in a car, even for a short amount of time, you
may be arrested for this serious crime. If your child does not survive
the wait in the car, you may face murder. Parents that leave their children
in a vehicle and come back to find them dehydrated or in critical condition
can also face charges for negligence or abusing a child.
