One Arrest for Endangering a Child

MEDIA RELEASE

 

For Immediate Release                                                July 13, 2016

 

                             One Arrest for Endangering a Child

 

Sheriff Jimmy Harris states as follows:

 

            On July 12th DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office received a call about a male subject walking around on County Road 97. When deputies arrived they approached Justin Tyrone Pinkney, 24 of Fort Payne, to see what was going on, Pinkney stated that his vehicle broke down and that he left his children in the vehicle. When deputies got to the vehicle they noticed a small child standing beside the vehicle and an infant in the back seat. The children appeared to have been left in the vehicle for some time. At this time Department of Human Resources and DeKalb County Investigators were called to the scene. Pinkney was arrested and charged with Endangering Welfare of Child.

            Sheriff Harris says “When the weather is this hot outside it puts everybody in danger to heat exhaustion or something worse if they are left in a vehicle for a long period of time without air. Thanks to the citizens that called this in we were able to get these kids out of this situation and thanks to the deputies, investigators and DHR for their quick response in this case.”
