Man Guilty In Daughter’s Drowning
(LAS VEGAS, KXNT)–A Las Vegas jury has convicted Francisco Vidal on child endangerment charges after his two year old daughter wandered away from her home and drown in a neighbor’s pool last October.
The 27 year old Vidal represented himself at his trial. The jury took fewer than three hours to convict him.
Vidal was supposed to be watching 2 year old daughter Khloe. Prosecutors say he was sleeping.
Vidal faces 2 to 20 years in prison when he is sentenced.
Vidal’s girlfriend and Khloe’s mother Sandra Scharas told authorities she pleaded with Vidal to lock the front door behind her as she left for work that morning because she did not have a key. But prosecutors said Vidal never locked the door, and slept for seven hours in a garage.
