There have been all manner of excuses for so-called adults leaving their kids alone in a parked car. There was, for example, the mother who left the young'uns behind while she attended a rap concert. Then there was the 22-year-old genius who left her toddlers behind in a car with the windows "cracked" slightly while she went to get a Brazilian wax.
Now comes a novel twist on parental idiocy. Say hello — and, one hopes, goodbye — to Princess Marks, who not only had her 5-year-old and 7-year-old out past their bedtimes, but left them unattended so she could orally service her boyfriend in a neighboring vehicle.
Louisian station KBMT via Palm Beach NBC affiliate WPTV reports that the latest candidate for mother of the year was arrested shortly after midnight last Friday after deputies with the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office received word of a parked SUV containing two young children and no parent in sight.
When confronted by the officers, Marks, 25, of Lake Charles, admitted to leaving the children in the SUV, adding that she was unable to see them from her boyfriend's vehicle. Then again, with her head in his lap, she wasn't able to see much of the surrounding world.
Marks was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center. She was charged with child desertion and released on a $5,000 bond. The children have been placed with family members.
