OGDEN — A woman police found passed out on a lawn with her infant children in tow remains at large.
Crystal Suzanne Latham was 27 when she was arrested the night of Nov. 20, 2007, in the front yard of a Washington Terrace home.
Residents had called police to report her passed out drunk on their property with her two small children poorly dressed and crying, according to police. Weber County Sheriff’s deputies found Latham on the lawn, her 2-week-old daughter in a car seat lying on its side and her 2-year-old son in his pajamas with no shoes, according to the allegations. The temperature at the time, just before 11 p.m., was 29 degrees, but the children had not yet suffered injury. Latham remains charged with two counts of class A misdemeanor child abuse neglect and one count of class C misdemeanor public intoxication. She skipped her Feb. 27, 2008, trial in 2nd District Court in Ogden, with no new entries in her court file since then beyond reissuing a warrant for her arrest.
