WILKES-BARRE — A woman from Luzerne County was immediately sentenced after pleading guilty to child endangerment charges.

Police say Amanda Lopez left two children home in Hanover Township last year. They say that’s when a 3 year old poured hot water on a 2 year old, burning the little girl on her neck, ears, and back.

Police say that instead of taking the child to the hospital, Lopez and another woman tried to treat the burns at home.

Lopez was sentenced on Monday to two years of probation and ordered to complete parenting classes.

    Sooo, what was she doing and where was she when she left a 3 and 2 yr old home alone and they had access to hot water? The 3 yr old knows how to boil water for tea? She and her stupid friend thought more of themselves than these children because they didn’t want to get in “trouble” for neglect. So the kids are home with her again…awesome.
