Child's mother: "neglecting a child" state statute 948.21(1)a


2 year old child


On 12/17/13 at approximately 2:05 p.m. both Madison Fire and Madison Police Departments responded to Sunfish Court for a report of a two-year old wandering outside wearing simply a diaper.  A search of the area was performed to find a possible residence for the child and relative.  The child was taken to a local hospital for an evaluation.  Through the course of the investigation it was learned that the mother had tied her child to the bed with a four foot long rope while the mother left to run errands elsewhere.
