Casino Patron Taken to Court for Childhood Endangerment

Over the past few months, the Parx Casino in Pennsylvania has received more attention from the press but not just because of the newly added table games. Several patrons have been reported for gambling at the casino while leaving their children waiting in the car, sometimes for long periods of time. The current case involves Paul Vargas, who is being taken to court for childhood endangerment.

Vargas has a history of criminal behavior, including resisting arrest, drug possession and a DWI. Vargas left his two children, ages seven and twelve, in the car alone while he played blackjack in the casino. Drug and alcohol evaluations will be administered to determine whether Vargas has a substance addiction. “Driving around with a suspended license, alcohol in his system and going to the casino is not good parenting,” remarked the attorney for the prosecution and the DA.

Vargas’ children remain in the custody of their grandparents for the time being. The arraignment is scheduled for October 15th, 2010.
