A Greene County mother was in court yesterday.
Frances Rooney faces a charge of neglect of a dependent.
The woman’s two-year-old son was found wandering nearly two miles from home in the Sullivan/Greene Forrest in August. Rooney was not arrested according to the prosecutor because she has four children, and her husband works. She could be arrested if she misses a court date.
Rooney's next court appearance is scheduled for January 22.
