Smh, this is 5 min from my house.

TAMPA (FOX 13) - Police arrested a Tampa mother who allegedly left a baby in a hot car while she went into the courthouse to pay a fine.

Just after noon Friday, an off-duty Plant City officer was flagged down by passers-by who were concerned about a baby left alone in a car on Twiggs Street. According to a police report, the sweating infant was showing signs of distress and her face was red.

The report says the officer “gained access” to the black Kia and put the baby girl in his air-conditioned vehicle, where she continued sweating for several minutes before cooling down. When paramedics arrived, they took her to the hospital to be checked out.

The report noted that it was 93 degrees that afternoon. Tampa Fire Rescue measured the interior temperature of the car at 123 degrees after they arrived.

Meanwhile, the baby’s mother came out of the courthouse and explained that she’d opted to leave the sleeping baby inside while she paid a fine inside because she didn’t expect it to take as long as it did.

Brandi Leigh Guggino, 23, was arrested on a charge of child abuse and neglect. She was released from jail on $2,000 bond.

The baby did not appear to suffer any long-term injuries, the report added.

She should lose all right to that child for placing her in a life threatening situation. But CPS will give the baby back to her. Parents like that should be hanged, drawn and quartered the first time they screw up

It's one thing to leave a baby like that be accident. It is a totally different thing to do it knowingly.

Ah it's that time of year again. She should be charged with attempted murder. She intentionally put her child in a situation that would result in her death. The reason that this shit keeps happening is because the parents are not held accountable. If she had claimed she forgot to drop her off at the babysitter's, she would have been released scott free while the world weeps for her loss.

I have no idea why this is so common why does this keep happening. It makes me think that they're intentionally trying to kill their kids and make it seem like an accident. This shit just baffles me and sorry if my text is kind of weird I'm using speak to text
