3-Year Old Returned to Man Who Passed Out and Left Her in the Street

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: A 39-year old man was given 18-months of probation Wednesday, after admitting to passing out on a lawn along Bluefox Boulevard North, while his three year old child sat in her stroller in the street.

 

Just before 11 o'clock in the morning on July 13th, a concerned citizen called 911 and stayed with the child until police arrived. Once on the scene paramedics spent some time trying to wake the man up, as he was heavily intoxicated. Then just 10-hours later, after being released with a condition to abstain from alcohol, police found the same man intoxicated and passed out on a park bench.

 

During sentencing it was also revealed that child services has returned the little girl to her father, and the two are now living with his mother on the Blood Reserve. It was noted that the girl's mother left shortly after she was born. The lawyer representing the accused, who can not be named to protect the identity of the child, also acknowledged that her client has a drinking problem, but stated that he does have a job.

 

Judge J. LeGrandeur did include an order that the man must take any counselling suggested by his probation officer, such as substance abuse, life skills and parenting programs.

 

LeGrandeur was not willing however to impose a recommendation made by the Crown, that the man not be allowed to consume alcohol while taking care of a child.
