Drunk, Pantsless Bangor Babysitter Receives Jail Sentence
A Bangor woman is going to jail for child endangerment after she got drunk and left the children alone.
Lauren Gelinas admitted to police that she'd had some vodka when they found her walking around a neighborhood off Ohio Street, naked from the waist down. The incident happened while she was responsible for the care of two children, ages 2 and 4, whom she had left alone in the home.
Police went to the residence and found one child crying hysterically and lying in vomit, while the other was dirty and sound asleep. WABI-TV reports one of the kids told authorities that Gelinas had kicked them.
She pleaded guilty to child endangerment this week and was ordered to spend 60 days in jail. She will also pay a $300 fine.
