A Florida woman is sitting in jail for child abuse after she brought her two children, ages 6 and 7, to a bar with her and left one there with a stranger for over an hour.
36-year-old Rickquel Kehoe brought the two children with her to the bar at about 6 p.m. on Sunday. She, according to the arrest affidavit, drank â€œto the extent of extreme intoxicationâ€.
She then left the 7-year-old with a man she’d just met and left with the other child and another man from the bar. Deputies say she was gone for just under an hour and a half before coming back to pick up her child.
She was arrested and taken to the Pinellas County jail on one felony charge of child abuse. Her bond has been set at $5,000.
It hasn’t been specified whether or not she was the mother of the children.
