Babysitter Caught With Child Strapped In The Back Of A Pick-Up Truck! Worst Sitter Ever?

The woman was filmed by stunned motorists clinging onto the eight-month-old baby in a stroller, while the truck cruised around the streets of Daytona Beach, Florida.

Babysitter Keyona Davis, 34, was arrested on Wednesday August 17, after concerned road-users called 911. She was charged with neglect — but allowed to walk free from court the following day. Did she get off too lightly?

“It’s not something you see every day,” Daytona Beach police Chief Mike Chitwood tells CNN. “I hope they revoke her babysitting license for that. Would you want her watching your kid?”

Keyona, who was babysitting a friend’s child, told cops she had a firm grip on the stroller and had no idea that what she was doing was wrong! Can you believe that?

In court, her lawyer even claimed the neglect charge was too harsh, saying, “It’s only if the pickup crashes, the child will be injured or hurt.”

She was set free by the court on Thursday, on her own recognizance. Police plan to investigate the driver of the car and the child’s mother.

Should she have been given jail time? Or a harsher punishment? Weigh in HollyMoms?

I understand giving the baby sitter a felony neglect, I understand investigating the driver, but why the hell would the police want to investigate the mom? She made sure an adult was watching her child, she had no way of knowing the babysitter would do something so stupid (pretty sure she wont make that mistake again) and she was distraught when she heard what happened. Why the hell are they going to investigate her?
