DENVER (CBS4) – A Denver judge who admitted to leaving her grandchild in a locked car on a hot day could face jail time if she’s found guilty of violating a city ordinance.
Judge Mary Celeste has been served with a citation for committing wrongs to minors. The possible penalty is up to a $999 fine or up to a year in jail.
Last Wednesday a customer at the Sam’s Club on South Broadway noticed a child alone in a locked car and police were called. The child was okay.
Celeste’s attorney says she left the car fan running with water inside.
No state charges will be filed against Celeste.
