Woman admits to leaving kids in the car while she gambled


A woman has admitted to leaving her five children alone in a car while she gambled last summer.

Yulissa Troncoso pleaded guilty in Northampton County Court on Friday to endangering the welfare of her children.

Troncoso left five children in the car in the parking lot of the Sands Casino in Bethlehem for about an hour last August while she gambled, police said. The kids ranged in age from 10-months- to 12-years-old.


The windows of the vehicle were open about two inches, police said.

Troncoso, of Allentown, is due to be sentenced June 7.
