ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) – A mother found eating dinner at a restaurant, while her child was left alone in the parking lot, now faces criminal charges.

29-year-old Shanna Cooksey is accused of endangering the welfare of a child.

Police were called to the Pueblo Solis restaurant on Hampton last Friday.  They found the 17-month-old sleeping in a car seat in a pick-up truck.  The windows were rolled up and the passenger door was unlocked.

The child was reportedly sweating, but otherwise unharmed.
