Mom pays fine for improper supervision
A 38-year-old mother whose young children wandered out of her home and into the street was ordered to pay more than $200 in City Court.
Tina L. Connolly, of 406 S. George St., was ordered by Judge John C. Gannon Friday to pay a $100 fine and $120 surcharge on one count of second-degree harassment, reduced from endangering the welfare of a child.
Police said at about 9 a.m. May 6, Connolly left her two young children, ages 1 and 3, without proper supervision in her home. Police said the children were able to get outside on their own and walk into the middle of South George Street, where they were found by neighbors. The children were underdressed and not wearing shoes, according to witnesses.
A neighbor told police that she later saw Connolly walking home and carrying groceries.
