Woman Enters Plea After Nine-Year-Old Son Drives Car

By  | 

GREEN OAK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- A Michigan woman charged with allowing her 9-year-old son to drive around their neighborhood has entered plea deal in the case.

WHMI-FM reports 33-year-old Leah Jaglowski pleaded guilty Tuesday to allowing an unlicensed minor to drive. In exchange, a charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor is being dismissed.

Sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 8.

Police responded Nov. 2 to a manufactured home community in Livingston County's Green Oak Township, about 35 miles northwest of Detroit, after residents said a driver looked too young to be behind the wheel of a 2002 Mercury Sable.

Police say the boy had a 5-year-old passenger and told a witness that he was taking out garbage.
