A local daycare worker was jailed Saturday night after allegedly abandoning her small children to go out with friends.
Montgomery County Deputies responded to an apartment at 24011 Richards Road in Spring to conduct a welfare check. When they arrived, they discovered a 3-year-old and a 6-year-old child left alone in the apartment. Deputies received information that the mother, 24-year-old Rosemary Kehoe, a Woodlands area daycare worker, had gone out partying for the evening leaving the children behind and unsupervised.
Deputies were able to find a family member to take custody of the children. When Kehoe returned she was arrested and remains in the Montgomery County Jail tonight on a total of $10,000 in bonds. She is charged with two counts of Abandon/endanger child w/intent to return.
Her case has been assigned to the 221st District Court.
