Farris Martin Had A Hot Meal While Her Children Went Hungry Outside In The Cold

Sacramento, California (The Weekly Vice) - Farris Martin, a 39-year-old Sacramento woman was jailed Sunday after she allegedly helped herself to a hot meal inside McDonalds while her children huddled together outside in the cold.

According to Sacramento police, officers were called to a local McDonalds around 9:30 p.m. after a witness spotted two children huddling together next to a bush outside the restaurant.

Arriving officers found two children (ages 8 and 9)
still in the bushes struggling to keep each other warm. Temperatures that day were in the low 40's according to detectives.

When the officer asked the children where their parents where, the children stated that their mother had left them outside while she went into the McDonald's to eat. The officer waited about 15 minutes before the mother, identified as Martin, returned outside to get her children.

Investigators say Martin appeared to be intoxicated at the time. The children have temporarily been placed with a relative while the case is pending.

Martin was booked into jail and charged with felony endangering the life or health of a child.
