Katrina Camp, 30, was picked up by deputies in September on a Forest Service road near Nederland, Colo., having earlier walked away from her unclothed 2-year-old daughter, whom she had left to fend for herself in a pickup truck.

“You’re a parent,” she told a deputy.
“You know how it is. Sometimes you just need a break.”
