Drop all charges and report her innocence

    2. Petition by

      Amber Umbarger

      Warner Robins, GA

I am the mother of 2 little girls. I was at the movies and my mom was watching my children. My children were asleep in their beds. My daughter, who is 3, woke up and decided to open the door and go outside looking for me. She could not reopen the front door. She was in her underwear not naked, as the news reported. A neighbor found her waiting to get back inside. My mother(grandmother) was sound asleep. So since the cops found it hard to wake her up they want to accuse her of child cruelty. No one could get in touch with me because my phone was off since I was at the movies. I then heard the voicemail from the police claiming if someone came she would not be arrested. I rushed home and was there in 10 minutes. In less than 5 minutes they decided to take my mom off to jail anyway.They gave no time for me to arrive home. My daughter was inside when the police arrived. This is ridiculous to charge my mother with cruelty because my daughter opened a door. My mother's life is teaching and her students. She would never hurt a child. She has a master's degree in teaching of education and has been teaching for 10 years. These charges should be dropped. The police if anyone were cruel to my child by scarring her and taking her grandmother away in a cop car. I am now scared for my children's lives since they want to broadcast my house and mother's story on the news. People's children get out of houses all the time while parents are sleeping, it was an accident. Now my mom can possibly lose her job and all of us will be homeless and have nothing. She will lose her teaching certificate, job, and our home. We all live in the same house it is me,a college student, my mother, a teacher, and my 2 daughters ages 3 and 15 months. Please help. She is being charged with 2nd degree child cruelty felony.

Drop all charges against her and have her keep her job as a teacher.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Those charges are completely ridiculous. The police need to start looking at the WHOLE picture rather than a few pieces.

      Great teacher, woman. She was my son's teacher last year for 5th grade. Let her go free. Kids will be kids. I would trust Ms. Umbarger with my kids.
