Mom charged for leaving baby in car

Penny Nicole Hume expected to spend just a few minutes at the Baldwin County Corrections Center on Friday afternoon, authorities said.

Instead, she was booked into the facility for the weekend.

The 21-year-old had parked her 1997 Oldsmobile Delta 88 LS in front of the Baldwin County Sheriff's Office, next to the jail, and left her infant son strapped in a car seat, according to Sheriff Huey "Hoss" Mack.

Hume of Robertsdale cracked the rear driver's side window and kept the doors unlocked.

Then she stepped out and approached the docket room, a few hundred feet away, and asked the officers about bail for her boyfriend, Cody Robert Johnson.

Johnson was charged Thursday night with driving on a suspended license, driving without insurance, speeding and having switched tags.
