A Superior woman will spend two days in jail and a year on probation for leaving young children alone with the front door open in freezing temperatures.
Robin Lynn Hall, 26, pleaded guilty in Douglas County Circuit Court Friday to one count misdemeanor disorderly conduct.
One count of neglecting a child was dismissed but read in for sentencing.
As part of her sentence, Hall was ordered to undergo a chemical dependency evaluation, pay court costs of $243 and comply with a child protection order.
According to the criminal complaint:
A police officer went to Hall’s Superior residence to ask her about an alleged incident on Dec. 27. He saw the front door was open and two children, ages 9 and 3, were running from the door to windows screaming and crying. The 3-year-old was wearing just a diaper, shaking from the cold and screaming because she couldn’t find mommy.
Hall was not in the residence and a 1-year-old child was found sleeping in a crib. Syringes were found on a bed in plastic wrapping and the house was in disarray with toys, clothes, food products and other items scattered on the floor, furniture and shelves.
When Hall returned, she told officers she had left the residence to go for a walk, and was aware that she left the children alone. She admitted the syringes were hers.
The children were covered in filth and grime, and officers could find no shoes, socks or winter wear for the 1-year-old.
