Nicole Carmon has been accused of leaving her 2-year-old son in a car for more than 14 hours on end in freezing temperatures on December 16th. Her attorney described the woman as having problems with alcohol at her court hearing that took place on Monday.
After an intensive search and rescue operation, the law enforcement officers discovered the little boy partially buckled to the backseat of Ms. Carmon’s car which was covered in approximately six inches of snow in a strip-mall parking lot. The 2-year-old was immediately rushed to the hospital, suffering from frostbite and hypothermia. According to the court documents, the little boy had been sitting in the car for more than 14 hours before authorities could rescue him.
The mother admitted to consuming alcohol, namely six shots of vodka before she abandoned her vehicle near a Panda Express off Washington Street and 120th Avenue in Thornton with her 2-year-old son still inside.
In light of these events, Adams County Magistrate Judge David Blackett prohibited Nicole Carmon from coming in contact with her son and set bail at $50,000. Formal charges will be filled on Wednesday, December 21st.
According to Karla Begano, the babysitter, Nicole Carmon wanted to drop off her son earlier than usual on Friday afternoon in order to get ready for her shift at a strip club located in Westminster. However, she never showed up at the babysitter’s house. Furthermore, Ms. Begano was unable to reach her until Nicole Carmon showed up at her door on Saturday morning, shortly before 10 a.m. The babysitter alerted the authorities when she learned that the little boy was not in his mother’s custody.
After a search operation, the law enforcement officers were able to recover the 2-year-old boy who was sitting in the freezing car for 14 and a half hours, according to the authorities. The surveillance video pulled from a Conoco filling station shows the young mother “disheveled”, pointing to the east. Furthermore, the affidavit states that the woman was unsteady on her feet and appeared to be under the influence of alcohol, or drugs, or even both.
Moreover, this is not the first time Ms. Carmon attracts the police officers’ attention. At 18 years old she was busted for underage drinking. Two years later, Nicole Carmon was cited for the same thing twice. Also, she was involved in two drunk driving cases in 2009 and an alcohol-fueled disturbance in 2013. The jury will reach a decision on Wednesday when Nicole Carmon is expected to show up in court for leaving her 2-year-old son unattended for 14 hours in a freezing car.
