That’s what 19-year-old Breona Watkins said in a court appearance on Wednesday after she was arrested when authorities found her baby in the trunk of her car during a traffic stop, CBS News reports.
According to the report, the discovery started out as a routine traffic stop over a broken headlight. However, Watkins did not immediately pull over but drove for about another quarter-mile.
Deputies discovered that in the time it took her to stop, the young mother had asked a 14-year-old passenger to hide the baby in the trunk so that she wouldn’t get a ticket for not having her baby in a car seat.
The authorities did not realize there was a baby in the trunk until they took Watkins to the squad car because she was driving without a license. It was then that deputies heard cries coming from the trunk
These young mothers smh. Your Thoughts? .
