NEW YORK (AP) - A Long Island caregiver has pleaded guilty to leaving a disabled client alone in a car while she went to visit a jail inmate.

Special Prosecutor Patricia Gunning says Friday that Angelique Broadus was working for a social service nonprofit group when the incident happened in May.

Prosecutors say the woman Broadus was supposed to be caring for required constant supervision.

They allege she left the woman alone in a car when she went to visit an inmate at the Nassau County jail.

They say she later purchased and smoked marijuana in the car while the woman was in the backseat.

Gunning says leaving the woman alone, even briefly, put her at risk.

Attempts to reach Broadus’ attorney late Friday were unsuccessful.
