    Default Woman jailed for leaving kids to go see Springer

    Woman jailed for leaving kids to go see Springer
    'I didn't think I'd be gone that long'

    Saturday, January 21, 2006; Posted: 11:41 a.m. EST (16:41 GMT)

    WHEATON, Illinois (AP) -- A woman got a 30-day jail sentence for leaving her three young children home alone for several hours, while she and her boyfriend attended a videotaping of "The Jerry Springer Show."

    Shannon Cook, 25, pleaded guilty earlier this week to misdemeanor child endangerment. She also was placed on probation for a year.

    "It was an appropriate sentence, given what she did," said DuPage County Assistant State's Attorney Joseph Ruggiero.

    The two girls and one boy, all under the age of 4, have been placed in foster homes by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services.

    Police said Cook left the children alone at a suburban home October 19, while she and her boyfriend went to Chicago for the taping. About five hours later the two oldest knocked on the door of a neighbor, who called police.

    Cook was arrested when she returned home after midnight. According to a police report, she said: "I didn't think I'd be gone that long."

    That's pretty much par for the course ... ain't it? .....
    Sums up Mr. Springer's show and audience quite nicely.


    We can only assume that it was a TRAILER that she left them in.

    Classic! And thank god those kids are out of her hands. Maybe they have a chance of not becoming a Springer statistic.

    Baby sitters are there for a purpose, use their service!!

    My Sims won't even leave the house to go to work if the babysitter doesn't show up!!

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    This chick should be a guest ON the show, not a guest AT the show.

    I know! I was sure he'd already emptied every trailer park and cut rate strip club in America for guests.

    Where I live (in CT) we have some Indian casinos, and they had to put in daycare centers for the gambling patrons, because people thought it was ok to come to the casino for a day of gambling and leave their kids in the car for the whole time.
