Earlier story:
A Pontiac mother who pleaded guilty to leaving two children alone in a car at the MGM Grand Casino while she gambled is scheduled to be sentenced today. 

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy charged 27-year-old Clelie Faith Choute with two counts of child abuse-second degree.

It was around midnight on August 19 when a passerby inside the parking garage noticed two children inside a car alone and immediately notified a security officer.

Inside the car, officers found a 2-year-old boy and 6-month-old baby girl.

Choute was found inside the casino.
