Woman charged after allegedly putting children in pet kennels

Woman charged after allegedly putting children in pet kennels

The video was filmed by a concerned citizen who was passing by.

Authorities responded to a call about a woman transporting children in dog kennels and, while investigating at a house in Whitehaven, Cheeks drove up to the home, according to an affidavit of complaint. Moments later, a girl straightens her bent knees to emerge from the pet enclosure.

Leimome Cheeks, 62, has been charged with two counts of child endangerment after the children, aged seven and eight, were released.

According to Memphis police, Leimome Cheeks, 62, said there was no room inside her vehicle, so she told the seven and eight-year-olds to get inside the kennels.

However, a local news source WREG reported that neighbours know Cheeks to be a wonderful woman and was unlikely to let the children go through that situation.

Police noted that it was 95 degrees that day in Memphis and that there were no air vents in the back of the Ford Explorer.

Justify became the second undefeated Triple Crown victor after Seattle Slew in 1977, finishing first in a field of 10. Justify was the Belmont's wire-to-wire leader, jumping to a lead out of the gate and never relinquishing it.

The youngster, wearing red trainers, green leggings and a purple t-shirt climbs out of the cage feet first, with her grandmother holding the kennel door open as she makes her exit. I couldn't see her actually doing that.

"It's shocking, it really is", Blake told WATN.

"Despicable", Sonrisa Schweddy wrote on Memphis Police Department's Facebook announcement of Cheek's arrest. She was being held in Shelby County Jail on Sunday night.

People convicted of child endangerment charges are typically sentenced to between one and 10 years in jail, depending on the seriousness of the case.

Cheeks is scheduled to appear in court Monday, June 11.
