This time, 25-year-old Lashanda Mobley allegedly left her 9-year-old daughter and 4-year-old son without supervision while she went to Club Cream to bring in the new year.
The daughter apparently became scared and called 911 after she heard gunfire outside their Second Avenue residence as the new year arrived at midnight. Deputies found her and the younger brother at home alone. The mom had been gone for about three hours, a report states.
Ms. Mobley was charged with two counts of contributing to the deprivation of a minor, according to jail records. Social service workers placed the children in the care of a relative.
The arrest follows a similar story from November when an Augusta mother allegedly left her three young children home alone to hang out at a local night club. In that case, Jennifer Racheal Thomas, 24, was accused of leaving her 2-year-old daughter, 5-year-old son and 7-year-old son alone at home.
