BREAKING NEWS – Houston, Texas – A mother of two in Texas is behind bars after she allegedly left her young children home alone for nearly a week while she went on a cruise.

Lakesha Woods Williams, 29, was arrested on two charges of child endangerment after leaving her 6-year-old and 8-year-old children alone in her high-rise apartment in Houston for six days, according to the Harris County Constable’s Office – Precinct 5.

Al Sharpton came to Williams’ defense. “White women abandon their kids all the time to go on cruises, so I see nothing wrong with sistas doing the exact same thing!”

Williams allegedly left for the cruise on April 4 and returned home during the evening of April 10. During her interrogation, she told detectives that she convinced her children that she was protecting them, after she forced her kids to watch the movie “Titanic”.
