Two Florida Parents Charged with Neglect Because 11-Year-Old Son was Playing Alone in Backyard for 90 Minutes


Reports of two Florida parents who were hit with felony neglect charges after their 11-year-old son was reportedly playing alone in the backyard for an hour and a half. Determination: Real

Parents charged with neglect after son plays in yard alone

The report is real, according to a June 14, 2015 article by Fox News that said a neighbor reported the child outside and alone to the local police. While his parents were driving home, the boy waited for them in the back yard, occupying his time by shooting hoops.

When the two parents arrived home they were approached by officers who arrested and formerly charged them at the police station. The boy, along with his 4-year-old brother were placed in foster care, and after an 11 month ordeal in the courts were eventually allowed to return home to their parents. 

Fox said, the parents contacted Reason magazine and told them, "The authorities claim he had no access to water or shelter.  We have an open shed in the back yard and 2 working sinks and 2 hoses.  They said he had no food.  He ate his snacks already.  He had no bathroom, but the responding officer found our yard good enough to relieve himself in while our son sat in a police car alone.  In his own yard, in a state,  Florida, that has no minimum age for children to be alone."

Fox invited two attorneys to discuss if the charges went too far in the video below:
