Qld mother to be charged after leaving two year old son at home alone.
A young Queensland woman has been charged after she left her toddler son at home alone for seven hours while she went out partying.
The 18-year-old is alleged to have left the 2-year-old boy at home around 1.30am Sunday, while she headed to a pub in the Cairns CBD.
She returned home seven hours later, only to be greeted by police officers at the property.
The woman is due to appear in the Cairns Magistrates Court on January 20 charged with leaving a child unattended.
Detectives from the child protection investigation unit are also investigating.
Poor little man. That would be horrifying for him.
