Deputies in St. Martin Parish have arrested a mom who left her two small children in a truck stop casino parking lot while she played a video poker machine inside, officials said.

The sheriff's office says Tara Jackson, 37, was arrested Tuesday after deputies found her children, ages 1 and 5, outside the truck stop.

Authorities found Jackson playing video poker inside the casino, apparently leaving her children in the running car for about an hour and a half.

Her two children were placed in the custody of a guardian

When is it ok to leave your kids unattended in a vehicle? Is there a certain age? Time length? Temperature outside? Car running or not running?
Where is the line drawn here? Obviously gambling isn't a legit excuse but what is or isn't?

They are 1 and 5. I would say never at that age.

At my local casino, they don't let parents leave anyone under 18 in a car.

Well, hell, it was a truck stop. Should have been plenty of idle truckers around that would have made excellent baby-sitters. In fact, I'm surprised it didn't work itself out that way naturally.
