The toddler, who documents identify only as G.T., died Monday after being left in a car for eight hours outside the daycare where his aunt worked.
The aunt, Sandra Rodriguez-Miramontes, appeared in court Tuesday and is being kept in jail on an immigration hold, officials said.
Rodriguez-Miramontes, 19, was born in Mexico and has been in the U.S. since she was 9, her lawyer told KOB.
The judge set her bond at $50,000 cash surety, which means she would have to post $5,000 cash to get out - if and when the immigration hold is lifted.
A lawyer for Rodriguez-Miramontes said she has the" full support" of her family members - including her sister, who is the mother of the child who died.
Criminal Complaint 2-- SSN-NA-- (Shes illegally working around children. I am sure she will soon be in Mexico very soon..)
She works in a day care and forgot her 2 yo nephew in the car?!?!? I hope the day care fired her, at the very least!!!
