The woman's 14-year-old son has been turned over to the Delaware Division of Family Services.
Milford police have arrested 48-year-old Jill R. Griffith after her 14-year-old son was found alone with an untreated medical condition.
Milford Police Department spokesman Sgt. Robert Masten said Griffith was taken into custody July 13. The case began when officers were called to the 900 block of North Dupont Highway to investigate a report of a child who had been sitting near a business for a long period of time.
The teen told police he had been left there by his mother and was waiting for her to return. The boy also had a medical condition that had gone untreated and although he was left with medications, there were no directions on how they should be taken.
Griffith was jailed at the Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution on a $1,100 secured bond.
The boy has been placed in custody of the state Division of Family Services.
