Woman Charged With Neglect After Son Reports Starvation
Via DC Crime Stories:
A Northern Virginia woman was arrested after her 4-year-old boy called police, claiming he was hungry.
According to Prince William County Police, the young boy called 911 around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday. When police arrived to the child’s Bristow home, they found him home alone.
Police were eventually able to contact the boy’s mother, 43-year-old Love Sonia Altagracia Polanco Franklin. She soon showed up and was charged with felony child neglect.
It’s unclear how long he was left alone.
Her Linkedin page indicates that she’s works in television and video production and is working on a children’s book.
Franklin was released from prison on personal recognizance.
How is the deadbeat mom writing a children’s book when she’s not even feeding her own son?!
