Indiana father admits strapping kids to car hood
Wednesday, July 11, 2012
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — A northern Indiana man has pleaded guilty to several charges after driving three blocks with four children strapped to his car’s hood while he was intoxicated.
Twenty-nine-year-old Aaron Stefanski of Fort Wayne accepted a plea agreement with prosecutors Monday. Stefanski was arrested in May after someone called 911 saying he saw Stefanski use a tow strap to secure the children to the car’s hood and drive away.
Stefanski pleaded guilty to child neglect and drunken driving charges and faces six months to three years in prison on each of the four felony counts when he’s sentenced Aug. 3.
Police say Stefanski told officers he thought the children ages 4 to 7 would enjoy the ride and he was only driving around the corner.
