School bus driver facing Child Neglect charges after leaving young children home alone
Milwaukee (CBS 58) -- The District Attorney's Office filed charges against 29-year-old Cherron Miller of Milwaukee.
According to the Sheriff's Office, deputies were serving papers at a residence and found three children, ages 6,1, and 5-months-old left alone. The baby was in the crib and the other two were sleeping on a couch.
The mother, Miller, returned to the home from her job as a school bus driver and said a man, who she could not identify, had been watching her kids.
According to the criminal complaint, Miller normally leaves for work around 6 a.m. and returns around 9 a.m.
Acting Sheriff Richard Schmidt said, “The governmental system should not be forced to substitute for the family unit. However, as a law enforcement professional, I applaud the work of the deputies and the District Attorney's Office in holding a parent responsible for neglecting her priceless children.”
Miller faces up to 27 months in jail if convicted on three counts of Child Neglect.
