A 25-year-old Lake Charles woman is accused of leaving her children in an unattended vehicle while she had sexual relations with her boyfriend.
Early this morning, around 12:40 a.m., Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputies say they responded to a report of two young children left unattended inside an SUV in the parking lot of a Lake Charles store.
Deputies say they located their mother who confirmed she left the 7 and 5 year old children unattended. The windows were rolled down and the vehicle was not running.
According to deputies, Princess Marks was performing oral sex on her boyfriend in his vehicle, which was also in the parking lot of the store. Marks also allegedly advised deputies that she was unable to see the children or her SUV from her boyfriend's vehicle.
Marks was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center, charged with child desertion and released on a $5,000 bond.
Police say the children were placed with family members.
