Man Fined For Leaving Toddler In Car While He Went To The Pub

A Sydney father has been hit with a fine for leaving his three-year-old son in a car while he went to the pub.

The incident happened on a hot day, with the 41-year-old man pleading guilty at Bankstown Court this morning.

The Magistrate took into account the fact that the man is the family's breadwinner and set the fine at $1300, taking into account the fact that the wide and two young sons would be penalised by a bigger fine.

It is also understood that the man is receiving counselling for anxiety and alcohol dependency.
