Another Reason Why Cell Phones are evil

From the LVRJ:
The Irving, Texas, mother whose three kids drowned in an apartment complex pool is out on bail after cops charged her with injury to a child.
"It is a second-degree felony. And by statute, that is punishable between two and 20 years in prison and a $10,000 fine," said Officer James McLennan with Irving PD.
Patricia Allen was arrested Friday. She posted the $50,000 bond a day later.
The deaths were initially investigated as accidental, but police said Tuesday morning new evidence from witnesses who claim Allen was on her phone and texting "constituted a criminal offense."
Paramedics were called June 24 after Allen took her five kids -- ages 3, 6, 9, 10 and 11 -- to the MacArthur Place Apartments pool.
Tragically, 11-year-old Anthony Smith, 10-year-old August Smith, and 9-year-old Treshawn Smith died after being pulled from the murky pool.
"The recklessness of her taking five young children with either no ability or little ability to swim or be in the water without a flotation devices, that is the basis of our charge," Officer McLennan said.
One drowning death may be an accident, perhaps, but 3 drowning's at the same time?
Yes, that is criminal.
