Police: Man housed kids in 'unlivable conditions'

CINCINNATI -- The father of a 2-year-old boy who walked out of his Colerain Township home and was almost hit by a car Thursday was also allowing his children to live in "deplorable conditions," according to police.

Ricardo Denson, 37, was charged with one count of endangering children after finding the child and discovering "unlivable" conditions upon further investigation.

Three children live inside the residence with Denson.

He was arraigned Friday morning in Hamilton County and given a $5,000 bond.

Police notified 241-KIDS , an organization in which people can report children they believe are in danger of abuse or neglect.
