Leimome Cheeks accused of transporting children in cages

Leimome Cheeks accused of transporting children in cages”

Leimome Cheeks of Memphis, Tennessee, is behind bars after a video surfaced on Twitter shows her letting her children out of dog kennels after locking them in the trunk of her auto.

According to a Memphis police affidavit, Cheeks told the two kids, ages seven and eight, to ride in the kennels because there was not enough room inside the vehicle.

The video went viral, and eventually led to the arrest of 62-year-old Leimome Cheeks, reported the Commercial Appeal. The unidentified children told officers they were very hot in the kennels because there was no ventilation in the back of the vehicle to keep them cool.

Cheeks told police she put the kids in the kennels because there wasn't space in her SUV. She's such a nice lady.

"When I saw her face on Facebook", she said, "I was like, wait a minute, that looks like my neighbor across the street". "If she did that, then that's out of character for her", Eugene Richmond said.

People convicted of child endangerment charges are typically sentenced to between one and 10 years in jail, depending on the seriousness of the case. I only met her like once maybe twice.

She also drove to downtown Memphis, telling police she made stops to check on them periodically.

"I think she needs some help".

They also said sitting in the kennels was very hot, because there were no vents for air. Cheeks is scheduled to appear in court today.

Skylark Blake, one of Cheeks' neighbors said the incident was not typical of something Cheeks would do.
