Woman Pleads Not Guilty To Child Endangerment

More Video...

She's accused of letting two toddlers in her care wander away from a Lexington motel room.

But Wednesday, 20-year-old Mindy Street plead not guilty to child endangerment charges.

She was arraigned at the Fayette County Courthouse.

One of the children is her son, the other is her brother.

Police arrested Street on Tuesday at the Knights Inn on Elkorn Road. She says she was asleep when the children she was watching wandered off.

A passing driver saw two boys playing at a nearby storm drain and called police.

One of the boy's fathers said Street was supposed to be watching the children, who are two and three years old.

The children are in state custody while the case is being investigated.

    This is Aug 22, by Sept 2 this "mother" will have her children back and all charges dropped. Why bother wasting taxpayers money arresting her at all? The laws in this state where children are concerned are useless. The welfare system will say they are too overwhelmed to look into every case, yada yada yada. We've heard it all before. Save me some money and just forget the whole thing. You will anyway
