Mother arrested after naked child found in street
GRETNA- A Gretna mother is free on bond following her arrest on child desertion charges after police say her autistic son was found wandering naked in the street and eating grass.
Jovan Mosley was arrested Saturday after Gretna Police said her 7-year-old autistic son was found three blocks from their home.
According to an arrest report, it was about 50 degrees when officers found the boy, the third time he was found wandering the streets alone.
When officers took him home, police say Mosley was asleep on a couch while five other children - ages 5, 8, 9, 10 and 11 - were playing unsupervised.
Mosley was booked on four misdemeanor counts of child desertion and released Sunday on a $2,000 bond.
