A South St. Paul father who left his 4-year-old son in his van has been charged with child neglect or endangerment and will spend six months in jail.
Dominick Miller, 32, pleaded guilty on Monday to his gross misdemeanor charge of leaving his son in his van while attending a movie in Inver Grove Heights Oct. 1, the Star Tribune reports.
According to Dakota County Court District reports, Miller could not find his way back to his child or the van because he was drunk.
The Pioneer Press reports Miller was not charged with a felony because the child did not suffer serious injuries.
Miller, who is not married, was ordered to have no contact with any of his children. He has two others who are 8 and 13.
