They put a black woman in jail for leaving her kids in a food court for 20 mins while she did a job interview, but this white woman won’t spend a day in jail.
The Iowa mother who was accused of leaving her four children home alone while she took a trip to Germany last year was sentenced to probation Thursday on child endangerment charges.
Erin Lee Macke, 31, avoided up to eight years in prison for multiple counts of child endangerment and instead will spend two years on probation, a Polk County district judge ruled, the Des Moines Register reported.
According to authorities, on Sept. 21 police found Macke’s four children, ages 6 to 12, home alone after the father of one of the children received a call that she was taking off for Europe.
