Two Hephzibah women were arrested Monday on child deprivation charges.

About 1:10 a.m., Richmond County sheriff’s deputies responded to a burglar alarm at a home in the 3500 block of Woodlake Drive, according to an incident report.

When deputies arrived, they found six juveniles alone in the house, ranging from 2 to 10 years old. Police then made contact with the mothers of the children, Temeshia Denise Williams, 30, and Porta Tanksley, 26, and asked them to return home.

Williams and Tanksley told police they left the house to go to Wal-Mart in North Augusta, and that an 18-year-old niece was supposed to be watching the children. The niece wasn’t at the scene at the time of the incident and couldn’t be contacted, the report said.

Police later obtained warrants for Williams and Tanksley’s arrest, and transported the two to the Augusta-Richmond County Jail. Both were booked on three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

The children were turned over to family members.

Two of the Now 43 %

Six kids. One non-existent 18 year-old ? Really? Are these two women part of the now "43%" ?? Glad that there were other family members that could jump in, but the kids suffer, and then WE suffer.

Temeshea Denise Williams -
Unless there are 2 people with all 3 names in ARC and look alike.
She has a criminal history.

Almost let this slip by

Temeshea Denise Williams, previously of the 1500 block of 15th Street.

Whats on the 1500 Block of 15th street?
What is being closed down and the residents moved to other such locations, and Section 8th to the South Side?

My heart goes out to those poor children

they have no choice - they are stuck in an environment that will make them stay on the same merry go round that their "mothers" are on. Sad state of affairs indeed!

"- they are stuck in an environment that will

make them stay on the same merry go round that their "mothers" are on."

.
And that will never change as long as our system allows politicians to be elected on promises of free "stuff" in exchange for votes.
