CARTHAGE, OH (FOX19) -

The parents of a 3-year-old child found wandering on Vine Street over the weekend appeared in court on Monday.

Police responded to a corner barber shop at 6901 Vine Street after a report of a found child. The child did not tell police his name. It took police over 5 hours to find the child's mother, Shanita Williams, on Saturday.

Police say that the father of the child, Husseini Wilson, originally told police he was sleeping at the time the child left the home.

Police later found out Wilson was not home at the time the child left and he was covering for the child's mother.

Against the advice of his attorney, Wilson plead guilty to obstructing official business.  The judge sentenced him to 90 days in jail and a $7,500 fine.

Shanita Williams plead not guilty to domestic violence and obstruction of official business charges.

The judge set her bond at $15,000.  If she bonds out, she will have to wear an electronic monitoring anklet.
