Lelier Perez Hernandez Arrested for Leaving Tot to Die in Hot Day-care Van
|Lelier Perez Hernandez|
Previous reports claimed the driver failed to conduct a head count as children left the van. Young Andrews was left in the van all day, strapped to his seat, as it sat in an uncovered alley behind the day-care center.
Hernandez sits in the Pretrial Detention Center on $15,000 bail.
The boy's family has already filed a lawsuit against the day-care center, and owner Misael Ramos has voluntarily closed the center until the investigation is complete. Previous reports said Ramos was the only person connected to the facility who had the proper chauffeur's license to be driving the van.
