Jeanette Darnley, accused of leaving her child in a hot car back in July entered a plea to charges of child neglect, creating risk of injury on Thursday.
The incident occurred in the Kohl's parking lot at The Highlands, when a shopper approached an Ohio County Sheriff's deputy and reported seeing a small child locked in a car. A 9-year-old boy was then discovered inside the vehicle. Officers got the boy out of the car and into an air-conditioned police cruiser.
Darnley was inside the store with 25-year-old Stephen Clemens, allegedly shoplifting.
