An Ontario County mom is facing charges after deputies say her two small children were found outside alone Tuesday morning.

Deputies say 24-year-old Kristen Drennen fell asleep in her Shortsville home and was unaware that her children were playing outside. They say the children, ages two and three, were found playing near County Road 19 around 11:30 a.m. after a passerby called police.

Drennen was issued an appearance ticket and is scheduled to appear in Manchester Town Court at a later date.
