Pennsylvania does have a Safe Haven Law, which allows parents to drop off babies & # 39; s of 28 days or younger in a hospital or police station.
After leaving the bus in tears, she was found a hundred yards away, based on the driver's description.
A driver told ABC6 that the woman should have no consequences for actions and said: "I personally think you should take it to the right authority, but in the same respects they can ensure that the baby is taken care of by a bus driver." ;
But the police accused her of child threats because she had abandoned the baby and failed to take appropriate measures to ensure his care and safety.
Walters was sent to Northampton County Prison instead of 10 percent of the $ 10,000 bail.
