SACRAMENTO, Calif. - A California mother is facing jail time for allowing her son to play outside without supervision.
"He was outside and the neighbor called the cops on us," said Sonya Hendren, the boy's mother.
One day, Tomahawk was playing outside for about 20 minutes when neighbors say they asked him to go home.
However, he told them he wasn't ready to stop playing, so they called child protective services.
Sonja Horrell says she called CPS because she was worried about Tomahawk being left alone, but meant the family no harm.
"We have a CPS case now, and anytime he's not in my visual sight, we're in violation," Sonya Hendren said.
According to Hendren's attorney, she could face up to six months in jail and three years probation.
She was offered a reduced sentence of 30 days in jail and one year probation, but she rejected it.
