Shanesha Taylor was arrested on March 20th by the Scottsdale Police for leaving her children ages 2 and 6 months in her car while she interviewed for a job. Ms. Taylor was homeless and could not access any child care. Her desperation to provide for herself and her children and her lack of options led her to take drastic measures in search of employment. Ms. Taylor needs support & help rather than incarceration and a criminal record that will surely decrease her chances to provide for her children in the future. We ask that Maricopa County use common-sense and provide support for Ms. Taylor and her children rather than punishment.
Shanesha Taylor is still in jail pending a $9,000 bond.
- County Attorney, Maricopa County
Please Drop the Child Abuse Charges Against Shanesha Taylor. Ms. Taylor needs support not incarceration and punishment. We ask that Maricopa County use common-sense to provide the resources that Ms. Taylor and her children need to recover from this ordeal.
