What happens if a 7-years old child is found being home alone? Please help

City Of Industry, CA |

I have a relative who was neglected about her daughter. One day her daughter woke up and cried for being alone at home. Her daughter was scared and informed the teacher in school. Now, what might happen? Will the government take away the daughter? Will the mom go to jail? Can somebody please tell me about it?

She may or may not be prosecuted. She may or may not have a dependency proceeding. There is a lot of information missing to make what is really only a wild guess.

The above is not intended as legal advice. The response does not constitute the creation of an attorney client relationship as this forum does not provide for a confidential communication.
