Louisiana woman Princess Marks was arrested after allegedly leaving her young children in a car while she performed oral sex on her boyfriend.
The 25-year-old woke her 5 and 7-year-old daughters in the middle of the night, drove to a parking lot and left them in the SUV with the windows rolled down. Across the parking lot in her boyfriend’s car, Marks and her boyfriend allegedely met for a “hook up”.
Lake Charles area police responded around 12:40 a.m. to a call reporting unattended children in an SUV that wasn’t running and found both of Marks’ daughters.
Both of the children were crying hysterically, according to Officer Kim Myers of the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office. While officers were trying to calm the children, Marks appeared and admitted to having been on the other side of the parking lot with her boyfriend.
“Marks also advised deputies that she was unable to see the children or her SUV from her boyfriend’s vehicle,” a spokesperson for the Sheriff’s Office revealed.
Marks was arrested and booked at the Calcasieu Correctional Center, then charged with child desertion and released on a $5,000 bond.
Marks’ children have since been placed in the care of family members.
Police responded to a similar incident last week, when a woman in the same area left her children in a hot car so she could go shopping. When the temperature inside her car was taken, it reached 130 degrees.
