Texas Mom Gets 40 Years After Kids Die In Hot Car

A Texas judge showed little sympathy during sentencing for a mom whose two daughters, ages 1 and 2, died after being left in an increasingly hot car overnight.

“Those precious little girls would still be here today if this had not happened,” said Judge Keith Williams,  according to Hill Country Breaking News.

“People in our community take better care of their pets than you took care of your kids,” Williams told Hawkins.

According to news reports, in September, Amanda Hawkins pleaded guilty to two felony counts of abandoning or endangering a child causing imminent danger of death, bodily injury or physical or mental impairment and two counts of injury to a child.

In 2017, police said the then-19-year-old mom drove to a friend’s house in Kerrville, Texas.

 Police said the children were in her car for between 10 and 15 hours from Tuesday night until midday Wednesday while Hawkins and her friends were inside a shed smoking marijuana, according to testimony.

At one point, a 16-year-old at the party who didn’t want to sleep in the shed slept in Hawkins’ car with the girls.

When he awoke at 8 a.m., he rolled up the windows, brought the key inside and told Hawkins he was leaving. The teen, Kevin Franke, is also charged in the girls’ deaths with two counts of first-degree murder, according to court documents.

The temperature was 89 degrees, a Kerr County Sheriff’s Office report said

At her sentencing last week, Hawkins said she was ready to “accept whatever the punishment may be.”

  1. The mom is not even an animal: she is lower than an animal. Animal take better care of their young. She is lucky that she did not get the death penalty.
