STRATFORD, CONN. -- A Stratford mother is facing charges after, police said, her 1-year-old daughter was found wandering alone on the street, according to a report in the ctpost.
Madeline Cubero, a 37-year-old resident of Henry Street, was charged with risk of injury to a child, the report said.
The barefoot tot was spotted crawling on the sidewalk on Christmas Day by an off-duty state trooper who had been attending a family gathering in the neighborhood, the ctpost story said.
Cubero told the ctpost that she was a struggling, single mom with six children and that it was an accident that her daughter had left their home unnoticed through an unlocked door. The incident did not reflect, she said in the story, what kind of mother she was.
