Kidnapping and child neglect in Miami

A recent Miami incident, involving the kidnapping of three children and child neglect charges, shows the importance of paying attention to your surroundings and making sure your children are with you at all times when going out.

According to Miami Herald, Anthony Milhomme went into a grocery store, leaving three young children inside a car with the motor running. Moments later, the car was gone and the children with it. Finally, about three hours later, Miami police arrested the woman driving Milhomme’s car and reunited the children with their moms.

Both the driver and Anthony Milhomme were taken to the police in handcuffs. The driver, Velan Verdier, is facing one count of grand theft/auto, three counts of abduction, and one count of armed robbery. However, the owner of the car is also facing charges, as police note that Milhomme left the children for 15 minutes. In addition to three counts of child neglect, he is also facing one count of obstruction.

This example shows us that it is important to lock up not only our cellphones and our purses, but especially to remember not to leave a child in a running car. Children left in unattended cars can be subjected not only to this type of kidnappings, but can also suffer serious circumstance from heat, especially in the very warm counties of Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach.

If you are accused of this type of criminal offenses, including child neglect and obstruction, make sure you benefit from the best legal advice and defense possible from a specialized criminal defense lawyer. Our experience criminal defense team in Fort Lauderdale is at your disposal for advice and representation.
