Why isn't Ms. Kent also being charged with endangering the welfare of a child? We all saw the photo of her coming out of the store with a baby on her hip.

"Kent is accused of being with Kyle Monroe when he made purchases at a local store using a stolen credit card." They caught him because he wore those pants again, didn't he? I don't think he reads The Batavian, or he would have known not to go out in those pants again, ever. He should have sold them on Craigslist, listed under "Funky Retro Pajama Looking Pants." The girl was probably babysitting for some poor dupes.

She was just with the guy that took the card not the one using it and I don't think that is endangering the welfare of a child. Maybe if she left the kid in the car to shop or was on drugs or drinking while the kid was with her.

I find "guilty by association" weak in this case. There's a good chance she didn't know Mr. Monroe was using a stolen credit card. If that's the case, she's more than likely being coerced to spill every bit of dirt she knows on him to keep herself from ending up in jail/prison.

Does anyone remember this man from last Oct? He is the same man who was arrested Oct. 24,2009 for allegedly driving a stolen vehicle. He was also arrested for allegedly stealing a vehicle from Washington Ave. three times. Or I should say, he was in possession of the key to that car that was stolen. Why is he not in jail already?
