Criminal Justice Quote: Baby on Board (But in the Trunk)

     One mom faces child abuse charges after police found her 5-month-old child in her vehicle's trunk during a traffic stop. Police in south Florida tried to pull over her vehicle, but 19-year-old Breona Watkins kept driving. When she stopped, the deputy heard a baby crying in the trunk.

     According to the arrest report, the child was lying on top of a pair of hedge clippers and was surrounded by dangerous objects including a gas can and other debris. Watkins told authorities that she asked her 14-year-old passenger to slide the baby into the trunk through a back seat panel because she didn't want to get ticketed for not having a car seat. Watkins remains jailed on $7,000 bond.
