    June 08, 2012 No comments

    Two Indianapolis mothers accused of leaving their children in hot cars will not face criminal charges.

    Nicholet Bracey, who works for the Marion County Juvenile Detention Center, was arrested Monday on a preliminary charge of neglect after she left her 4-year-old son in a hot car during a work meeting, police said. 

    A day later Charise Jones was arrested on two counts of the same charge after she left her 1-year-old in the care of her 9-year-old in a hot car for nearly two hours while she attended a job fair. 

    The Marion County Prosecutor’s Office said Thursday that its Child Advocacy Center determined that the facts in both cases do not rise to the level of a criminal offense. 

    A spokeswoman said, “Leaving children unattended in automobiles is of great concern to this office. Therefore, the police agencies involved have referred these matters to the Indiana Department of Child Services for a review and any action it may deem necessary to protect the best interests of these children.”

    In both cases, the children were not injured.
