Grand Jury Indicts Rodriguez For Abandoning A Child
On Tuesday, a Lubbock County Grand Jury indicted 21-year-old Andrea Rodriguez for abandoning a child. Police say she left her one-month-old daughter alone in the car on the evening of July 1st at United Market Street on 50th and Indiana.
The police reports states the baby was crying, her face was red and puffy and her skin was hot to the touch. Rodriguez told authorities she forgot the child was with her, and thought she'd left the infant with her sister. The baby did not suffer any major injuries.
Rodriguez remained in the Lubbock County Jail Tuesday night. Authorities tell NewsChannel 11 that Child Protective Services placed all of her children with other family members.
