British couple arrested in Florida for leaving kids in hotel room

Post by Cristobell on Wed Jul 30, 2014 1:03 am

Short, but interesting article.  The parents left two children, aged 5 and 1, asleep in their hotel room to watch fireworks in the pool area.  The little girl was found wondering in the hotel looking for them.  The parents spent the night in cell and are waiting to hear if the police are going to press charges.

Interestingly, the grandfather is or was a police chief in the UK.

I was wondering why there were no comparisons with certain other cases then noticed that this dates back to 1999.

The parents were never charged apparently.  The arresting officer resigned shortly afterwards.  But the family sued the hotel and the local police ( in the latter case claiming that their arrest had caused them psychological damage....) and received settlements from both parties. They were claiming damages of 200, 000 dollars but received 7500.

I am rubbish at posting links otherwise I would add one to support the above and also link to an interesting article in the Independent which commented on their thoughtlessness.
