A 31-year-old Baton Rouge mother is charged with child desertion after leaving her daughter alone in a hotel while she went to the Belle of Baton Rouge casino.

Brittany Mason was arrested and her three-year-old is in the custody of the state Department of Children and Family Services.  Police say she left the child alone about 2:30 Thursday morning.

The little girl was found crying and alone three hours later in one of the casino's hotel rooms.
