FLORENCE COUNTY, S.C. (WSAV) – Bond has been set for a South Carolina woman who is accused to leaving a baby inside of a hot car on Tuesday.
Deputies in Florence County said they had to break a window to rescue the one-year-old who had been locked inside the vehicle for at least 10 minutes.
Jennifer Wise, 38, is charged with unlawful neglect of a child. She appeared before a judge on Wednesday, where her bond was set at $15,000.
Wise was also disqualified from a public defender, meaning that if she would like legal counseling, she will have to get her own private counsel.
Deputies said the baby is expected to be alright.
