Wichita Falls Man Leaves Child In Car While Gambling

WICHITA FALLS, TX - A Wichita Falls father was arrested after he left his 3-year-old daughter in car while he gambled at a Lawton casino.

A parking lot attendant at the casino noticed a young child sitting alone in a running car with a window down. After reporting the child to police, the father, Jesus Bonite, was taken outside and, according to the report, asked if his car was OK when he saw the officer.

Bonite admitted to the officer that he left his 3-year-old daughter alone for approximately 50 minutes Thursday afternoon while he went inside to gamble. He was arrested for child neglect and the child's mother was called to pick her up.
