HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – There are disturbing new details about a local doctor who was arrested at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

According to Seminole police, the woman left her children alone in her car while she went inside to gamble.

Dr. Marieny Elena Guimera-Revelo is listed as an internal medicine doctor at Cano Health in Pembroke Pines.

It’s a senior care center located about 15 minutes away from the casino.

Guimera-Revelo faced a judge Tuesday and was told she can’t have any contact with her children.

Police said those children, ages three and 11, were locked inside a car outside the casino.

The children had been in the car for about an hour before police found them. They said she barely paid attention to what was going on and was spotted on surveillance cameras playing poker at a table.

How her alleged judgment affects her employment remains to be seen.

Meanwhile, the legal battle for her kids is just getting started.
