In his most recent interview, Charlie Sheen says he's been keeping so busy that he hardly has time to neglect his children.
A couple in Lawrence, MA were charged with criminal neglect after they left their dog unattended in the car in 90 degree heat.
But the dog wasn't really alone. Heidi Dreher and Kenneth Reader also left their two children, aged 4 and 5, in the car for at least half an hour while they negotiated a drug deal, police say.
Massachusetts law forbids people from leaving an animal unattended in a car but does not forbid the same treatment of children.
"As far as we know, child neglect is a civil matter that we don't get involved with," said a lawyer with the Essex County D.A.'s office.
