WTF?? Mother who abandoned baby in Nativity scene will NOT face charges!

By Rob Crilly for Telegraph

A mother who abandoned her newborn son in a manger at a New York church will not face criminal charges, according to prosecutors.

A caretaker found the crying baby swaddled in towels in a Nativity scene inside the Holy Child Jesus Church in Queens.

His mother was tracked down by police but she will face no charges, said Richard Brown, district attorney, because she left him in a place where he would be found quickly.

"It appears that the mother, in this case, felt her newborn child would be found safely in the church and chose to place the baby in the manger because it was the warmest place," he said.

Under New York state law, a parent may abandon a newborn anonymously at certain designated “safe haven” locations, as long as the baby is handed to an appropriate person.

Father Christopher Ryan Heanue, one of the priests at the church, said he and others placed a clean towel around the baby while waiting for paramedics to show up on Monday.
