A Temecula teacher's aide has been charged with child endangerment after her 12-year-old was found naked and eating food from trash cans.

The incident happened back in February. Tracy Lynn Betts, 41, allegedly took her daughter's clothes, so that she would stay inside a parked car while Betts was at work.

She is now on paid leave from Vail Elementary School in Temecula. If convicted, Betts faces up to one year in jail.
