Kaufman Texas, - A Forney couple faces child endangerment charges following an arrest by Kaufman County Sheriff’s Investigators on September 8th, 2010. Liandro Flores age 31 and April Flores, age 24 have each been charged with one count of endangering a child.
The arrest stemmed from an incident on August 25th, 2010 when EMS personnel responded to the couple’s Forney home in reference to a two year old child that was unresponsive. The child was subsequently transported to Children’s Hospital in Dallas where it was discovered the child had suffered from marijuana intoxication.
Medical personnel noted that the child’s toxicity of marijuana was much higher than what is usually associated with passive inhalation which suggests that the child was intentionally given marijuana in an excess amount. Following treatment, the child was released to the custody of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services where the child remains until a disposition on the case.
The Flores’ were transported to the Kaufman County Law Enforcement Center where they were released on $5,000 bond.
