Leonardtown woman accused of confining unattended child
Rebecca Leigh-Ann Fowler, 28, of Leonardtown was charged Monday through a summons with confining an unattended child, in court papers alleging her 10-year-old daughter fell off a scooter after being left at home with a younger brother.
A babysitter did not show up that af- ternoon at the Wheatley Apartment Way neighborhood, the girl told first responders, who treated her at the scene for a minor leg injury from the mishap, according to the court papers filed by Trooper M.S. Whitman of the Maryland State Police.
During police questioning, “Fowler advised when she left her residence, she told the children not to leave from inside,” according to the court papers stating that the children “appeared to be in good health, and had clean clothes on. The residence also appeared to be clean and in good condition.”
