4 days enough for leaving old man in hot car

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) -- A California caregiver who left a 101-year-old man in a hot car last summer won't be facing anymore jail time.

A Fresno County judge says four days in jail after her August arrest was enough for 46-year-old Tina Ann Johnson of Auberry.

Johnson had pleaded no contest to a count of inflicting injury on an elderly person.

During Wednesday's hearing, the judge also reduced the crime to a misdemeanor and ruled Johnson will not be placed on probation.

The Fresno Bee (http://bit.ly/Yc0kLw ) says Raymond Messer was found inside a car in a Walmart parking lot in Clovis. Johnson was located inside the Walmart an hour after police arrived.

Messer was taken to a hospital for examination of heat-related injuries and he was released the same day.
