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

Asked almost 2 years ago - 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?
