PAPILLION, Neb. (AP) — A 22-year-old La Vista woman who left her young children alone in a home so she could go drinking at a friend’s house has been given six months in jail.
Sarpy County court records say Michelle Polan was sentenced on Monday to two terms of six months, to be served at the same time. Polan was given credit for six days already served. She was convicted of two counts of negligent child abuse.
Police say Polan admitted she left the children alone in her sister’s basement in September. Polan’s sister called police after she came home to find the 9-month-old twins crying in the basement.
