The Mom of a toddler that was left behind at a park is now facing criminal charges.

24-year-old Annisa Flores was arraigned yesterday at the Weslaco Municipal Court.

The Mother was charged with endangerment of a child after forgetting her 2-year-old daughter at the city park on Saturday night.

Sergeant Bernie Garza told reporters that the child was left behind after her mother and five siblings went out for a family outing to the park with their grandmother and three other children.

Sargent Garza said that incidents like this have happened before especially when it comes to big families but the time it took for the family to notice did raise some red flags.

According to authorities, the 2-year-old was found in a healthy condition she is currently in the custody of child protective services.

Anissa Flores is currently behind bars at the Hidalgo County Jail.

If found guilty, the Mother is facing up to six months to two years and a fine of 10,000 dollars
