Woman charged with child neglectPublished 10:10pm Wednesday, March 27, 2013
A Suffolk woman has been charged with child neglect after refusing to let her son back in the home after an argument.
Linda Ann Jones, 35, was arrested Saturday after officers responded to her home in the 6800 block of Crittenden Road on a report of a domestic disturbance.
Officers were met by Jones upon their arrival, according to city spokeswoman Diana Klink. Jones said she and her juvenile son “were in a verbal altercation and that he had been very disrespectful to her and acting out and that he was not allowed back in her home.”
Police told her several times that she could not deny her son shelter, Klink said.
“She advised she didn’t care and that officers could take her to jail,” Klink said.
She was transported to the magistrate’s office, where a warrant was obtained for child neglect. She was processed and released on bond.
