SANDUSKY, OH (WOIO) - Sandusky parents slapped with charges after leaving their newborn home alone so they could panhandle.
20-year-old Kimberly Whitcomb and 29-year-old Maurice Bonton were arrested on January 13th for begging outside of a bar.
After sitting in jail for over 16 hours, Whitcomb admitted leaving her 2-month-old home alone.
Officers immediately went to the couple's Perry Street duplex, and found the baby girl strapped in her car seat with a dirty diaper.
Both Whitcomb and Bonton are charged with child endangering and panhandling.
Social workers took custody of the baby.
