JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

A Jones County woman is charged with child neglect after deputies said they found her five children unattended at a home on Houston Road.

Concerned calls received by the Jones County Sheriff's Department led deputies to the home Monday.

Deputies said when they entered the residence they found the children ages 8,5,3,2, and 10 months alone. Police said the children were unattended and in filthy surroundings. According to the department, the children stated they had not eaten since the day before, so a deputy left to purchase them hot meals.

All children were transported to a local hospital and are now in custody of the Department of Human Services until the investigation is completed.

Deputies contacted Jasmine Clinton, 25, while they were at the home and told her there was an issue with her children. Police said when she arrived to the home she was arrested and taken to jail. Clinton is facing a $20,000 bond.
