Proud Parents: In The News

PHOENIX — A Valley woman was arrested this week after she allegedly abandoned her young daughter at a fast food restaurant.

According to police, 23-year-old Lucy Janet Parra picked her 6-year-old daughter up from school on Wednesday and took her to eat at the McDonald’s at 2305 W. Bethany Home Road.

Parra, who had had the rights to her children taken away by CPS, left the restaurant after her child walked inside.

Parra’s daughter and another customer searched the parking lot for Parra’s vehicle, but she was nowhere to be found.

The police were called, and about 15 minutes after officers arrived Parra returned.

Police went on to learn that Parra had been released from Tent City on Wednesday morning after spending a week in jail for driving on a suspended license.

Officers also discovered that Parra had left two other children at her mother’s house, but no one in the family knew they were supposed to be watching the kids.

Parra is now facing one count of child abuse.

  3. What kills me is that CPS had already taken her kids away once. Once a parents loses their child like that, they should NEVER get them back.

  5. Kids having kids. Most adults aren’t responsible enough to have babies, let alone a 17 year old.

  7. I can’t help but comment as this article deserves one that makes sense. First of all being charged for child abuse for leaving her kid? it should be child neglect. Whomever wrote this needs to get their facts straight as their is a big difference between abandoning and abuse. Second,why in the hell would she even have access to her kids if her rights were taken away? once they are,they should not be given back. The state is just a stupid as the parents are.

  9. This is why sterilizing people like this should be legal. They don’t know how to take care of kids or don’t give a crap about their safety.

  11. She picked her up from school, simply to drop her off a fast food place? I am beyond baffled.

  13. You know…if I were ok with forced sterilization, people like this chick would be prime candidates.

  15. I was 19 when I had my first daughter who also just turned 6 and I wouldn’t dream of leaving her at a place like that or anywhere alone for that matter. In fact tonight she hates me because she couldn’t go accross the street and knock on her friends door at dark. I also have a 4 year old son and a 1 year old daughter and I love my babies very dearly so m please don’t patronize young mothers because we aren’t all bad parents.

  17. At least she had the decency and common sense to realize she couldn’t care for them and left them with others instead of killing them . I don’t know why she left the one at the restaurant; here in New Orleans a lady left a baby with two paramedics having lunch at A@#$s, which is actually legal under Louisiana “Safe Haven” laws. Maybe she saw the story on tv..
