My Comment: How can this woman feel the charges against her for leaving her children alone in a hot car for an hour should be justified….Especially after hearing recent news of others who did the same with the LOSS of their children? I am all for mercy and where is the mercy for the children?????? She could of said she had no baby sittr and took them in to the interview…………………..

(CNN) — Shanesha Taylor walked out of a job interview on March 20 at a Scottsdale, Arizona, insurance company feeling like her luck was about to change.

After months of fruitless job searching and moving her three children from one home to another, she was optimistic that she had found not just a job, but a career that would ground her family. The interview went well, lasting longer than expected. The 35-year-old single mother felt like she had the job “in the bag.”

All that changed in an instant as she walked out to the parking lot and saw police around her Dodge Durango, where she had left her two sons during her hourlong job interview. A woman on her lunch break had called 911 after hearing a child crying in the hot car.

“I felt lost at that moment, like everything I had built myself up for, everything I was trying to do, had fallen apart,” she said. “It went from how am I going to provide for my family to what’s going to happen to my family?”

She was arrested on the spot and held in jail for 10 days on two counts of felony child abuse, losing custody of her three children. Her tear-stained face in a mugshot struck a chord among sympathizers nationwide, who thought the actions against her were unjustified given the circumstances.

Supporters coalesced on social media, starting a fundraising campaign to cover her $9,000 bail. It raised more than $110,000 over two months. An online petition asking Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery to dismiss the charges drew more than 58,000 signatures. At one point #isupportshanesha was a trending topic on Twitter.
