Sen. Baker: Daddy Law Breaker?
During discussion of a Senate bill by Mandy Dawson that would make it a second-degree misdemeanor to leave a child unattended in a vehicle, Sen. Carey Baker revealed some eyebrow-raising parenting strategies.
He recalled recently leaving his young child in the car while he ran inside to get "a Juicy Juice," and he said his son, 4 1/2, likes to play in his truck while Baker is out back mowing the lawn.
"I'm not watching him; I'm mowing the lawn," Baker said. "Did I commit a crime?"
Replied Dawson: "If you leave the child unattended, that would be a crime."
