DAYTONA BEACH SHORES, Fla. (AP) --

The girlfriend of a sex offender tried to hide her young children from police by placing them on a ledge four feet below an apartment window.

Daytona Beach Shores police arrived at the apartment late
Wednesday after an anonymous caller said 20-year-old Philip Heidt,
a registered sex offender, had children in his apartment.

Officers say 24-year-old Deeanna Murray was inside the bathroom,
attempting to hide her 2-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son.
Heidt is not allowed to be around children under age 18.

According to a police affidavit, the little boy told officers,
"Mommy held me out the window. I was bad."

Murray and Heidt face child abuse charges, and Heidt is also
charged with violating his probation. The Department of Children
and Families took custody of the children.

    It's rediculous what the woman did and no one should treat children that way. However, the sex offender laws are so stupid that it drives people to even stupider things to try to move on with their lives. The real molesters, pedophiles, and rapists are locked up and the 18 w/ 16 are out on this stupid registry that makes everyone a sex offender. I disagree with this mother but I just as much disagree with this registry that does nothing to protect people. It only leads to more crimes.

    What kind of mother would risk her child's life like this!! Over a CHILD MOLESTER! She needs to spend some quality time in a facility for CHILD MOLESTERS!! Maybe then she will think twice before endangering her children's lives.

    These two kids need a new set of parents and never have to set their eyes on "mommy" again.

    Young women will do anything to keep from loosing a man!! They are so desperate that they will endanger their own child/children for a man (I'd rather have a vibrator).
