Amber Schmunk, a 29-year-old Fredonia woman, is now charged with second degree recklessly endangering safety.

Police were dispatched to the area of Hillcrest Road and Claremont Road in Saukville for a report of a child riding on top of a minivan holding down a plastic pool.

The caller who reported the incident followed the vehicle until the female driver pulled over, took the child off the roof, and put him inside the minivan along with the pool.

The driver, identified as Schmunk, told police that they picked the molded plastic pool at a residence and did not have enough room inside the minivan. She stated she decided to put the pool on top of the minivan but had no way to strap it down so she had her son climb on the roof and hold it down while she drove.

Schmunk told police that she thought it was "ok" as her father let her do things like that when she was that age. Shmunk also stated it was safe because she used a strap to tie her son down on top of the pool.

She strapped the kid down, why not strap the pool down?

If the wind got up under that pool that kid would have been smashed in the road. That pool would have acted just like a sail, it would have flew one way the the little boy another.

Why spend good money at the amusement park to allow kids to enjoy exciting rides when you can give them the same excitement without spending any money?

Uhm.

Strap to tie down the kid on the pool.

But no strap to tie down the pool?

Does not compute.

That is the face of a girl that thinks if a guy cums in her ass,
the kid will come out brown.

An overwhelmed single mother who briefly drove her minivan with her 9-year-old son on the roof to hold down a plastic wading pool was sentenced Thursday to three years of probation and ordered to embrace the help of social services.

"This was reckless conduct and when you begin to understand that completely and without justification, you will grow with the help offered," said Ozaukee County Circuit Judge Sandy Williams, who withheld any other sentence she might impose if Amber Schmunk violates her probation.

Schmunk, 29, of Grafton, pleaded guilty last month to second-degree recklessly endangering safety, a felony charge filed against her in September.

Her lawyer said then that Schmunk's priority was her children, and she did not want to risk a trial and possible incarceration. As part of her plea deal, Ozaukee County District Attorney Adam Gerol agreed to recommend probation.

"Jail was never on the table here," Gerol told the judge. He conceded that Schmunk struggled as a single mother and called her arrest a blessing because it finally forced her to accept assistance from social services.

Gerol said Schmunk appears to be a kind, well-meaning person without any drug or alcohol issues but who has been "rather simplistic" in making life decisions, like the one to let her son ride on the roof of her minivan.

"You simply have to do better," Gerol said.

Schmunk's attorney, Rachel Boaz, said her client was simply overwhelmed trying to provide for her four boys, ages 2 to 9 — one with special behavior issues. When she saw the free wading pool on the side of the road in Saukville last September, she stopped to pick it up, with her kids in her minivan.

Schmunk told Boaz she didn't care about the felony conviction because she would only ever be a factory worker and it didn't matter. And when a police officer came up to her later, Boaz said, the officer asked Schmunk, "What are you, a crack head?"

Boaz said Shmunk has been jeered in stores and parks since her arrest gained nationwide publicity. Boaz said while two other motorists called police or took a photo after seeing Schmunk, no one offered to help her with the wading pool.

Schmunk told Williams her kids are her life. "It's always been just me and the kids. If something happens. ... I just don't even want to think about it." She currently works from 6:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at a factory

Wiliams told Schmunk no one questions her love for her children. "But you need to stop focusing on this and look deeper. Until you focus properly, the needs won't be met properly." the judge told her.
