Leavenworth woman pleads to leaving baby in alley

LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) -- A 28-year-old Leavenworth woman who left her baby alone in an alley pleaded no contest to endangering a child and drug charges.

Prosecutors say Elizabeth A. Michaud entered the pleas Wednesday to aggravated endangering a child and two drug charges arising from other cases.

Michaud's 7-week-old son was left sitting alone in a stroller in May 2012.

The Leavenworth Times reports (http://bit.ly/17zgGRF ) officers who responded to a report of a missing child found Michaud crying and saying she needed to find her baby. She wasn't able to provide any information while officers searched for the baby.

Another woman found the baby about three hours after he was reported missing.

She will be sentenced May 31.
