LONG ISLAND (PIX11)- A Bayshore woman is accused of leaving her four kids in an illegally parked car, while she drank at a bar early Sunday morning.
Authorities say 40-year-old Maria Cepparo went to Momo’s Sports Bar and Grill in Holbrook around 12:15 a.m. While inside boozing, Cepparo left her children in an unheated and unlocked car. The car was also parked in a fire zone.
The children were two six-year-old twin girls, an eight-year-old boy and a thirteen-year-old boy. To make matters worse, the thirteen-year-old child is autistic.
Cepparo is being charged endangering the welfare of a child.
The kids were released to their grandmother.
