WHITEHALL, N.Y – A Whitehall woman has been charged with Endangering the Welfare of a Child after a boy was found wandering naked in the area of Mountain and McCotter streets on July 2.

Police say that after locating the boy, who was in the care of neighbors, he was taken to his residence on an adjacent street.

After investigation, police arrested 26-year-old Michel Juckett, of Potter Street, Whitehall, who told police she had "turned her back" on the child for a brief time and when she noticed he was missing, she sent household members out to find him.

Juckett was issued an appearance ticket to appear in Whitehall Village Court at a later date.

The case was referred to Washington County Child Protective Services for further investigation.
