Rockland mother arrested after leaving 2-year-old home alone

ROCKLAND (WGME) -- A mother was arrested early Friday morning in Rockland and charged with leaving her two year old home alone.

22-year-old Destiny Barrett is charged with endangering the welfare of a child. She told police she didn't know that was a wrong thing to do.

Police arrested Barrett Friday in Rockland after they say she left her 2-year-old alone in her apartment and spent the night at a friend's house.

Police say she told them no one told her it was wrong to leave a child home alone, so she shouldn't be arrested.

Barrett is free on $750 cash bail.
