Good luck to the father and all families involved. Hopefully they can provide some stability to the child. The system needs to change and give fathers equal parental rights. Typically the mother automatically gets custody and father is often forced to "buy" visitation or spend tens of thousands of dollars to fight for custody. Hopefully the system will give father opportunity provide home life all children deserve. Also hope mother can get help to fight her demons and return to child's life.

My comment is coming from a family member from the young boy. Thank you Wheeling News for reporting all the correct information. WTRF7 was contacted to clarify Clemmons is or was the Stepfather. The parties were married in 2012 but that doesn't matter, if you can imagine what this young boy has been going through for years and not through the fault of his actual father or other family. It has been the LAW, fighting year after year trying to make note of the on-goings of these 2 people. Yes, Ms. Darnley testified against her husband but guaranteed all for herself. The young boy is where he should be now and has a chance if we can keep the lawyers and prosecution out of it.

What the*****is wrong with people today. Drug addiction, child in hot car, and shop lifting= plea deal?? I would bet the marriage was attempt to avoid testifying! Does this child have any chance of a normal childhood in this environment? Sad

Pill zombies, shoplifting, returning stolen merchandise, not aware enough to know that they shouldn't leave a child in a hot car...either way you slice it...bad parenting. Who knows what danger this kid is in. FN a-holes....get yourselves straightened out before you lose your child!

So Clemmons never shoplifted. The kid could have gotten out of the car and the cop was so worried about him he put him back in the car. I assume they charged the cop with the same thing. Wait the kid was nine?

1.did she or did she not shoplift? Were the returned items previously shop lifted? 2.the boy said he could leave the car anytime.He was not "locked in."

The report does not make sense.
