Maria Gonzalez left young children at home to work in Memphis for the day

29-year-old Maria Amezquita Gonzalez was charged with 3 counts of child abuse and neglect. According to Clarksville Police, who were responding to a welfare check called in by the father, on Dec. 6th, Maria Gonzalez left her 3 kids, ages 9, 8, and 4, at home all-day unsupervised because she had to be in Memphis at 7 a.m. to film a tv episode for 12 hours.

Reportedly, Mrs. Gonzalez’s next door neighbor, Celina Robinson, told the officer she had been asked to watch the kids while Mrs. Gonzalez was away for the day, after which the police confirmed with Mrs. Gonzalez over the phone that this was true; only for Mrs. Robinson to later recant, saying she had no prior arrangement with Mrs. Gonzalez to watch the children, she had no idea the children were home alone and Mrs. Gonzalez had only contacted her once throughout the day to check on the children, by which point the police were already on the scene.
