The Babysitter


Victoria Brice Magnum has sued former Bandera County, Texas sheriff Weldon Tucker and three deputies for allegedly forcing her to abandon her baby by the side of the road. Deputies stopped Magnum earlier this year for a broken taillight then arrested her for driving without a valid license. They took her to jail but left her two-year-old daughter in a child seat in her car. Sheriff's officials say that one deputy remained behind in his patrol car to watch the child until Mangum's mother showed up. But they also say that after the incident the entire department received training in how to handle arrests in which a child is involved.
