Mom sentenced for leaving 2-year-old alone during liquor run in Liberty Twp.

Posted: Updated:
LIBERTY TWP, Ohio -

A Liberty Township mom was sentenced in court on Thursday after leaving her two-year-old daughter home alone while she went to buy alcohol.

According to the police report, neighbors on Lucretia Drive called police in July, when they heard the toddler crying and noticed that her mother, 31-year-old Candis Wynn, had left her unattended. After talking to witnesses, police noticed that the front door had been left unlocked and that no one was home.

Police say Wynn returned to the house in a Lyft vehicle at around 8:30 p.m. with a bag containing four 24 ounce cans of malt liquor. 

Authorities say Wynn claimed her boyfriend had been home with the child when she left. Officers say they talked to the boyfriend and he said he had been working since 7:30 that morning.

The Lyft driver told police that he had initially picked Wynn up at around 7:45 p.m. and didn't know that she had left her child unattended at home. 

Wynn appeared in court on Thursday and was found guilty of child endangering and sentenced to 180 days in jail.

According to court records, Wynn must also pay a $150 fine and serve one year of probation.
