Woman jailed for leaving children in car while attending job interview
Shanesha Taylor has been jailed for child abuse after leaving her two children in the car so that she could go on a job interview.
Taylor informed police that she could not afford a babysitter. A passerby heard crying from Taylor’s vehicle and contacted authorities.
Scottsdale police said a witness heard a crying child inside a Dodge Durango parked in an office complex parking lot at 9700 N. 91st St. in Scottsdale about 12:30 p.m. Thursday. The woman reported to police the two young children were inside the vehicle parked directly in the sun, with the engine off, the doors closed and each of the four windows were just slightly open.
The mother, Shanesha Taylor, 35, returned to the vehicle about 45 minutes later and told the officer she had just finished a job interview and did not have anyone to watch her children.
Taylor’s children have been placed in custody at child protective services while she remains in jail.
