    I think it is pretty obvious that the mother did not mean to lock the kid in the car and leave. IMO the ticket was BS.
    I believe the Judge will accept her word.
    Still there are some nutty Judges.

    The Weird Harold tells the story that the mother gave as if that's the truth and it's not possible that she's lying. It was the Aunt who locked the kid in the car, anyway, according to the story.

    According to the mother, her daughter had been at a pool with her aunt. When they arrived back at their home near 36th Street and Olin Avenue about 3 p.m., the aunt turned off the SUV and put her keys inside the car. The girl was in a child seat in the back of the vehicle.

    "When she exited from the car and opened the rear door, the wind pushed the doors closed and locked them," an officer wrote of the account from the girl’s mother in the report.

    Most of us have locked ourselves out of our car but I can't wrap my brain around the fact that she tried for atleast 15 minutes to open the car in 93 degree weather. Any mother I know would have broke that window within a minute or two, not 15+ minutes and would have called the police right away.
