WI couple left infant child in hot car to shop for sex toys


PLEASANT PRAIRIE (WKOW) -- A Wisconsin couple faces child endangerment charges for leaving their baby in a parked car while they shopped for sex toys in northern Illinois. 

The couple was reportedly shopping at Lover's Lane in Libertyville on June 22nd. Police say the couple left their 9-month old son in the sweltering car for 20 minutes without air conditioning. 

Officers who found the baby say he was crying and sweating profusely. They say he doesn't appear to have suffered any long-term effects. 

The father is an 18-year-old from Kenosha and the mother is a 20-year-old from Pleasant Prairie. They told police they left the boy in the car because no one under the age of 18 is allowed inside the store. 

They're scheduled to be in court August 2nd.
