A Florida woman who let her 7-year-old son walk alone to a park has been charged with felony child neglect. She said she felt he was mature enough to go to the park on his own. She said he has a cell phone he uses to check in with her. She could get jail time for this charge. There is controversy if this was truly a crime.
