Gambling sentencings

    The Bucks County Courier Times reports the first two of at least SIX (seriously) defendants charged with leaving children unattended in their cars while they gambled at the PARX Casino in Bensalem were sentenced yesterday.  One was sentenced to three months of probation and ordered to complete a parenting class.  The other also got three months probation and 25 hours of community service.

    Do you think these were cases of child negligence, or were they blown out of proportion?  Join the conversation by feeding the Feed.

    WHYY’s Jen Howard will have a report later on WHYY-FM.
