HOUSTON, Texas -- A mother accused of leaving her child alone to go on a date must now take parenting classes.
A judge gave that bond condition to 25-year-old India Hunter.
Court documents say on September 30 her 9-year-old boy was found wandering alone at a gas station on Hollow Tree Lane in north Harris County at about 4 a.m.
When deputies approached the child, the boy said his mom was out with her boyfriend.
In court documents, a Harris County Sheriff's deputy said the area where the boy was found alone is a dangerous place, with many violent crime calls.
Hunter is charged with child abandonment.
