MESA – 3TV is learning more about the Mesa mom accused of leaving her baby home alone locked in a closet.

This is not the first run-in Corinna Davis has had with law enforcement. According to court records, bruising to the boy's face was previously investigated. Davis said the bruises came from a fall down the stairs.

While she calls herself a proud mother on one website, another lists her as an escort. She calls herself “Barbie” on Myspace and in another ad on backpage.com filed under adult entertainment and escorts.

Davis also posted several pictures on the website, some are graphic in nature. The ad says she accepts donations and her rates are firm. She also claims she is not a prostitute but asks you to certify you are not a part of law enforcement.

Mesa police arrested Davis for allegedly leaving her 2-year-old boy home alone locked in a closet on Tuesday.

A constable serving an eviction notice was checking the apartment for occupants and reportedly found a chair braced against the bedroom door to stop someone from getting out. That is when he moved it and found the boy sleeping on a mattress in the closet.

According to court records the toddler had a chipped tooth, a bruised lip, bruising to his face, ears and hip.

His mom's excuse was that the toddler is clumsy and walks into walls. Davis admits to leaving her son home alone and says her boyfriend was supposed to be there 20 minutes after she left for work. She also admits to spanking her son but denies any further abuse.

Davis is on house arrest at her father's home and declined comment. 3TV spoke with her boyfriend in regard to the escort advertisement. He says Davis wanted to be a model and responded to an ad on Craigslist. He also says she was taken advantage of and is not an escort.

In the meantime her son is safe with Child Protective Services.
