Nanny accused of leaving kids in hot car to go tanning


PORTLAND, Ore. — A nanny accused of leaving a toddler and month-old baby in a minivan while she visited a Portland tanning salon has pleaded not guilty before a Multnomah County judge.

The temperature was in the 80s on May 14 when a witness noticed the children and called police.

A probable cause affidavit says 23-year-old Kristin Jones of Oregon City left the salon as the officer was removing the children.

The Oregonian reports that Jones was indicted last week on accusations of child neglect, criminal mistreatment, recklessly endangering another person and driving with a suspended or revoked license.

A judge told Jones on Friday that she can’t work as a nanny as she awaits trial and is to have no unsupervised contact with children.
