Madlyn Primoff

Madlyn Primoff, 45, was given a break by City Court Judge Eric Press who adjourned her case and agreed to dismiss it and seal it Nov. 9 if Primoff behaves. She was arrested on one count of endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor. Primoff was accused of abandoning her 10-year-old daughter in White Plains, NY after she drove off and left the child on the curb, three miles from home. See details here.

“Clearly, I made a mistake,” Primoff said outside court, her husband Richard standing beside her. “But I truly love our children and I know that I am a good parent.”

Prosecutor Audrey Stone said Primoff was “engaged in family therapy” and was not considered a danger to the children. Defense attorney Vincent Briccetti said later that Primoff intended merely to drive around the block and pick the girls up, but they were gone when she returned.

Her actions prompted a national debate on how to handle unruly children as seen in the clip below.
