Felicia Brown, 27, is charged with driving under the influence, driving on a suspended license, and two counts of contributing to the deprivation of a minor.

A 27-year-old mother is in jail after police said she left two children at home Satur­day to go look for their father.

Police said they were responding to a separate domestic violence case at Trinity Manor Apartments when Felicia Brown drove up. She appeared to be drinking, according to deputies, and they charged her with driving under the influence and driving on a suspended license. Authorities then learned two of Brown’s five children had been left home alone.

Deputies went to Brown’s East Telfair Street apartment just before 2 a.m. Sunday and found two sleeping children, ages 3 and 1. A neighbor told deputies that Brown asked her to look out for the children around 9 or 10 p.m. while she went in search of their father.

Brown’s three remaining children were found at their father’s home.

Two counts of contributing to the deprivation of a minor were added against Brown when she was booked into the Richmond County Jail.

5 children at 27. Those

5 children at 27. Those children don't stand a chance with a mother like that. Looking for the father in a bar and then drinking herself while searching. Probably didn't search long.

Yes, 5 Children by Age 27

And probably on welfare. Sad state of affairs for the kids. The Jail Report story had a little more information. Question to Felicia -- have you ever heard of birth control ? If you are on public assistance you should be tested for drugs, and if female, Norplant. Otherwise, no money. Can't tell you that you can't screw your brains out, but if we are paying for your kid to eat, we have the right to make sure you don't pop anymore out.

Piece of Work....

Tell me how someone is supposed to listen out for your babies?????? What if one of them started choking, do you really think a neighbor could hear that? I feel so sorry for these children, they did not ask to be brought into the world, so if your going to have them then take care of them, love them, guide them and support them. You are correct JRC, they don't stand a chance! Man does this anger me!!!!!

Poor kids

If the allegations are true, then this woman needs to be put in the pen for a long, long time.

Pray for these Children

May God please and watch over these children. It seems they need all the help they can get in life.

Re: Feel sorry for the children

My heart goes out to these neglected children. I am sick of these women that has a baby and don't want to be bothered with them. The three year old probably would not have made it if he walked into Washington Rd.

I wish they would start problems to teach these women how to be Mothers. Anyone can spit out a baby yet can you mother the child?

Make her learn Housekeeping & Child care classes while in jail.
