Cou­ple jailed for driv­ing with chil­dren in trunk

Tempo - - Front Page -

A man and woman ad­mit in court they drove from Ari­zona to Wy­oming with two chil­dren in the trunk of their car.

Sixty-three-year-old Michael J. Fee and 31-year-old Am­ber L. Freuden­stein each pleaded guilty Thurs­day to two mis­de­meanor counts of child en­dan­ger­ment.

The Casper Star-Tri­bune re­ports Cir­cuit Judge Steven Brown sen­tenced each to 30 days in jail. Fee is from Peo­ria, Ari­zona, and Freuden­stein is from Tempe, Ari­zona.

Sher­iff’s of­fi­cials say a third party told them the chil­dren re­ported rid­ing in the trunk for much of the 900-mile drive while two Ger­man shep­herds sat in the back seat.

Fee said in court there was not enough room for ev­ery­one so the chil­dren were rel­e­gated to the trunk. Court doc­u­ments show the chil­dren are about 6 and 10 years old.
