Probation possible for man who set car on fire with child inside


Probation has been recommended for a man police found in the trunk of a car that he was trying to set on fire with a child inside.

A background investigation has been ordered before a judge makes the final decision for Jacob Laskowski.

He entered the pleas with formal sentencing to come in six to eight weeks after the recommendation of six years deferred adjudication probation.

A second charge involved injuring a child at a home he shared with a woman and three children also carried a recommendation of probation.

The car incident occurred in a parking lot at McLennan Community College back in April.

MCC police found the car in a parking lot with a toddler in the front seat shortly after midnight.

Laskowski was in the trunk, with one report indicating he had tried to start a fire using lighter fluid and charcoal.

The other charge was connected with an incident a couple days before that in which a child had been thrown down to the ground.

In that incident,  his girlfriend, Kimberly Lara Nabors, was later arrested on a charge of endangering a child, accused of leaving children in the care of a man who had attempted suicide on several occasions and not contacting police after incidents of violence.
