Best Answer

In the legal sense that would be a decision for the court not for an individual. Generally under such circumstances the court will order an investigation by a state agency such as CPS or DFS, and if warranted the agency will request the court to take further action. Some factors that might apply if the matter were addressed by the court would be, if the child or children were with her when she was arrested, if she had a previous criminal record of any sort (which apparently is the case), the condition of the children and the home, and so forth.
