Only a couple reasons for not charging the dad.
1. He was at work came home the wife was asleep he started looking for the little girl. Found her and panicked then called for help and he can prove that.
2. He is so distraught it’s evident that he didn’t do it.
3. That means either the little girl climbed in the car got tired and laid down.
4. The wife picked her up from daycare after a 12 hour shift was tired forgot about the little girl. Went to sleep.
So in those situations where do you place the blame.
Both parents are suffering.
1. I place the blame on whoever picked up the little girl from daycare or didn’t take her back out after getting home from taking the other kid’s to school.
Regardless of how tired they were they had the responsibility to care for the little girl.

Keith, My Dear Friend and Brother, all I can say is “I have no idea”, all I know is that I raised 4 Boys, and never, EVER, forgot and left one in the car, OR pickup.
