Westmoreland jury finds father not guilty for napping while small children roamed

A former Greensburg man was found not guilty Tuesday of three felony offenses in which he was accused of being asleep as his young children walked alone on city streets. Jurors deliberated more than four hours before it acquitted Antonio Partlow, 33, now of New Kensington, of three counts of child endangerment. Westmoreland County Common Pleas Court Judge Christopher Feliciani declared a mistrial on three misdemeanor charges of reckless endangerment after the jury reported it could not reach a verdict on those offenses.

The deadlocked jury reported it had one holdout in favor of a guilty verdict, that deliberations became heated and further discussion would not result in a unanimous decision.

Partlow had been in jail since late last week after he initially failed to appear in court for his trial. He was released from custody Tuesday night after the judge reinstated his $25,000 unsecured bond.
