Mom Arrested for Leaving Her Children, 8 & 9, Home Alone for 45 Minutes
A mother is facing charges for leaving her children home alone for 45 minutes while she left to go pick up dinner.
Susan Terrillion, 55, was arrested last week after leaving her 8- and 9-year-old kids alone at their vacation rental in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.
Police said that they received reports of two children left alone and unsupervised.
When they arrived on the scene, a neighbor said the two kids and their dogs ran in front of his car.
He stopped to help the children get control of their pets, and that's when he learned that they were alone.
When Terrillion arrived back home after being gone for at least 45 minutes, she was arrested.
The mother was released on $500 bail. She faces two misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of her children.
In Delaware, there is no minimum age at which children can legally be left unsupervised at home alone. The state's website, however, says it will investigate reports of children 12 and under who are left unsupervised.
