Mother who left 5-year-old home alone charged with negligence

Posted under 4ed4983f-bae2-4c8c-91e1-7c64021cea7f

A Sheboygan left her 5-year-old son home alone August 7 and was charged with one count of misdemeanor child neglect Monday. Amber Johnson alledgedly left her son alone for more than an hour, and after a short time, the young boy wandered over to a neighbor's house, knocked on the door, and told the neighbor he was scared. 

For the neglect charges, Johnson could be without her child for six to nine months. She said she deeply regretted her decision and will likely plead guilty to the charges.
