She left her 5 year old son locked in her home and went to do some errands. She was away for about 50 mins and during that time he jumped out the window.

Disgusting but at least she is being dealt with properly and the possible sentence fits the crime.

Which just goes to show the ingenuity of small children determined to escape when confronted with a locked door... What a terrible thing to happen

Anna Kournikova's shame-faced mother after being accused of child neglect

Anna Kournikova's mother goes about her daily business today fearing she could be jailed for up to 15 years f she is convicted of child neglect.
Alla, who moved to Florida from Russia nearly 20 years ago as her daughter pursued a pro tennis career, is accused of leaving her five-year-old son home alone.
Little Allan jumped from a second-floor window and was found crying and bleeding by neighbours in Palm Beach after jumping from a second-floor balcony.
His mother, Alla, had left the house to run errands and locked him in.


The blond-haired, blue-eyed boy was still recovering after treatment in hospital today.
Under Florida law, if neglect results in an injury to a child, the charge can be elevated to a second degree felony.
Elisa Kramer, a spokeswoman for Florida's Department of Children and Families, said officers interviewed family members at the hospital and determined there was no need to take Allan into their care.
'Our primary focus is always making sure the child is safe,' she said.

'In this case there were other family members willing and capable of taking care of the five-year-old boy.'
But she added: 'Our investigation is not closed.'
Allan is the half-brother of tennis star Anna, 28, who lives 50 miles away in Miami.

'He's just a normal kid who loves to run around. He can't sit still for a minute,' the Moscow-born player said in an interview with the Palm Beach Daily News published just a day before the incident.

Mrs Kournikova, 46, who has never publicly revealed the identity of her young son's father, told police she had gone out to the bank and post office but left Allan on his own at home watching television because he did not want to go with her.
She left him a telephone and locked the front door with a dead-bolt to stop him wandering out.
'Kournikova knowingly left her five-year-old son in her residence unsupervised for in excess of 50 minutes,' said Detective Keith Medeiros in a police report.
'The boy jumped off a second storey roof that was approximately 15 feet high and landed in a white stone yard between two air conditioning units. The child stated he hung by his hands before letting go.'
Allan landed painfully on a patch of stones with no shoes or socks, then headed for the swimming pool to soothe his injured feet. A neighbour later found him wandering outside in the street and called police.

Officers found a ladder and broke into the house through the second-floor playroom, where Allan told them he had jumped from.
'They were unable to exit the residence as all the doors were locked with a key-type deadbolt lock. All the windows were painted shut or shuttered,' said Detective Medeiros.
Police left a message on Mrs Kournikova's mobile voicemail and met her when she returned home.

'She stated that the child was awake and sitting on the couch watching television at the time she left the residence and that he did not want to go with her to run errands.

'She advised she dead-bolted the residence and left him with a phone,' the police report revealed.
It goes on: 'Kournikova failed to provide the necessary supervision to maintain the child's physical well-being...the child had bruising about his feet and lower back as a result of the fall from the second floor. Kournikova is the child's mother and primary caregiver.'

Yet our own Celebrity Child Neglecters can leave theirs for over an hour and a half, one disappears for ever, and nothing happens to them. What gives?
