Leavenworth mother sentenced for leaving baby in alley

LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) -

A northeast Kansas woman who left her 7-week-old son alone in an alley has been sentenced to 60 days in jail.

The Leavenworth Times reports Elizabeth Michaud will also spend a year on probation under the sentence she recently received in Leavenworth County District Court.

Michaud pleaded no contest earlier to child endangerment.

The incident occurred in May 2012 when Leavenworth police received a missing-child report. Officers found Michaud walking around in a front yard saying she couldn't find her baby.

Another woman noticed the infant in a stroller about three hours later, alone in a Leavenworth alley. The baby was slightly dehydrated.

Michaud told a judge she was "under the influence" when she lost track of her son. She faces sentencing June 14 on charges in two unrelated drug cases.
