PD: AZ mom leaves 2 young kids in hot car during job interview

SCOTTSDALE, AZ (CBS5) -

It's unclear if an Arizona mom got the job she was interviewing for, but after a witness found her children, ages 2 years and 6 months in a hot car outside, she now faces child abuse charges.

Shanesha Taylor, 35

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.

"She was upset. This is a sad situation all around. She said she was homeless. She needed the job. Obviously not getting the job. So it's just a sad situation," said Scottsdale Police Sergeant Mark Clark. 

She was arrested and booked into jail for child abuse.

Her children are now in CPS custody.

My heart breaks for all involved, but really, a car? They could be dead.

So if she had no one to watch her kids, who would be watching them while she was working if she got the job?

I truly hope there is a silver lining in this story.

She would likely qualify for daycare assistance to work.

But not to go for a job interview?  Yet another screwed up thing about the system.

yes, it is...they expect a mom to go out and get a job, while providing no childcare so she can go get that job...makes no  sense...only after is she hired, is she able to get the assistance...kinda ass backwards if you ask me

How sad. Luckily once CPS gets involved there are all kinds of programs in place to help willing parents get back on their feet, get the help they need, and get their children back.
