State asks to revoke probation in Minot child neglect case

By  | 

MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot woman who left her two preschoolers in a car outside a bar for about an hour while she and her boyfriend drank and gambled inside in December 2015 might have her probation revoked.

The state has filed to revoke the probation of 24-year-old Chelsea Erie. Her probation officer says Erie pleaded guilty on Jan. 4 to leaving the scene of a property damage accident last September, and Erie also has allegedly failed to pay fines and court supervision fees.

A court hearing is scheduled Thursday.

Erie pleaded guilty to felony child neglect in the bar incident. She was given a two-year deferred prison sentence and 10 days in jail.

Police say Erie's 3- and 5-year-old children weren't harmed.
