Family supports Youngstown mom accused of leaving kids home alone to look for job

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio  -  A Youngstown woman pleads not guilty to 3 misdemeanor counts of child endangering, after police say she left her baby and toddler home alone.

23-year-old Reba Soldresson is accused of leaving the 3-year-old and 1-year-old at her Weston Avenue home, while she left to fill out paperwork related to a part-time job.

Youngstown Police were alerted there was a problem when Youngstown school security contacted them, saying the 3-year-old followed her 8-year-old sister to Paul C. Bunn Elementary School.

Soldresson's family says she is a good, dedicated mother, who used bad judgement.

Bond for Soldresson was set at $4,500, but the defendant is being allowed to be released from jail after posting 10-percent of that amount. 

The Youngstown Municipal Court Magistrate also ordered that if Soldresson posted bond, that she should be placed on house arrest, with work privileges.
