A Gwinnett County mother is accused of leaving her 3-year-old son strapped in his car seat while she went to a job interview, according to her arrest warrant.

Danielle Lanette Young told Cobb County police she left the boy in the car for about 30 minutes. But police determined the boy was in the car at least an hour and possibly an hour and 15 minutes Monday afternoon, her arrest warrant states.
