Florida mom arrested after 7-year-old son went to park alone
A Florida woman who let her 7-year-old son walk alone to a park has been charged with felony child neglect.
Thirty-four-year old Nicole Gainey's son was en route Saturday to a park about a half-mile from his home when he stopped and sat at a nearby pool, according to an arrest affidavit. Lifeguards said they had seen the boy five previous times and one approached him to ask where his mother was.
