Placeholder Image

A woman taking a shower was given probation on attempted child neglect charges after the 5-year-old she was supposed to be watching was found standing by the road.
The woman, Chinae Darrell, 27, entered a guilty plea to the reduced charge of attempted child abuse. She was granted a six-month judicial diversion and must perform 16 hours public service work. Her record will be erased if she completes her probation without getting into trouble again.
Darrell was charged after the 5-year-old she was baby-sitting was found sitting on the side of the road near Holly Pointe Apartments. Police found the apartment where the child was being kept and talked to Darrell.
“She stated she had been taking a shower and had been in the bathroom for approximately an hour,” said officer Leilani DeFore of the McMinnville Police Department in her warrant against the baby-sitter. “She didn’t know the child had left the residence without supervision.”
