Mother sentenced for leaving kids in hot car

Posted:

BEMIDJI, Minn. (AP) -- A mother who left four children in a hot car last summer while she shopped at Target in Bemidji won't spend much time in jail.

A Beltrami County District judge sentenced Bianca Hazelrigg to a year in jail, but stayed all but 24 days on Monday.

The Bemidji Pioneer (http://bit.ly/10wEXs2 ) says Hazelrigg must also spend two years on probation. She earlier pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of child endangerment.

Court documents say Hazelrigg left the children unattended in the car in 88-degree temperatures. The children are OK.
