The 4-year-old’s underwear were coated in feces, a city police officer noted. The girl’s mother said the girl was fully potty trained.
The younger kids’ diapers hadn’t been touched, the police report states. They had rashes on their thighs and buttocks, according to the officer.
“It appears that the children were never cared for,” the officer wrote.
When an officer spoke with Simmons, she admitted she abandoned the young children, but said she left because the home wasn’t clean.
She couldn’t explain why she ignored their mother’s calls and texts, according to an officer.
Probable cause for Simmons’ arrest was filed late last month, records show. She was arrested Thursday on a child neglect charge and released from the Palm Beach County Jail about 10 hours later on a $3,000 bond, according to records.
