A Walnut Creek woman was charged today with child endangerment after she allegedly abandoned her 6-year-old son at Union Station last week, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced.

Dava Denise Webster (dob 11/14/86) was charged in case BA469390 with one felony count of child endangerment. She is expected to be arraigned today in Department 30 of the Foltz Criminal Justice Center.

Deputy District Attorney Irene Lee of the Family Violence Division is prosecuting the case.

On July 4, Webster was with her son at Union Station in downtown Los Angeles when she is accused of leaving him alone at the train depot. A security guard approached the boy and police were called.

Webster allegedly came back to the station the following day and was arrested.

Prosecutors are recommending bail be set at $100,000. If convicted, Webster faces a possible maximum sentence of six years in state prison.

The case remains under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department.
