JAMESTOWN – The mother of a toddler who fell out of a window on Monday took to her Facebook page after her neighbors criticized her and called her a drug addict.
“I don’t do drugs,” said Jenni Marie Ames, when reached by messenger.
Minutes before our message seeking her side of the story, Jenni Marie Ames posted a message for her critics on Facebook.
“My son is fine. I was cleaning downstairs; his dad was on his way to work, and the windows are normally locked, and that doesn’t help when he knows how to unlock them,” she said.
“I don’t know why I have to justify myself, (and) besides that, everyone is perfect till it happens to them,” Marie Ames continued.
“The neighbor (who appeared in our original story) is just an attention seeker (who) knows nothing of my home,” she said.
When reached by messenger late Monday night, Marie Ames said her little boy received some stitches and was “back at home playing with his Easter stuff.”
“I just love my family, and we are trying to make life better for ourselves and others,” Marie Ames said.
We were unable to reach Jamestown Police for comment.
We will discuss this incident more in-depth on News Now at noon via Facebook Live.
