Leavenworth woman held in child endangerment case

May 8, 2012


— A northeastern Kansas woman accused of leaving her 2-month-old son alone in a stroller in a dark alley has told a judge she's a good mother.

Twenty-eight-year-old Elizabeth Michaud made the statement Monday during an appearance in Leavenworth County District Court. The Leavenworth woman is charged with aggravated child endangerment.

The Leavenworth Times reports a judge refused to release Michaud on her own recognizance, which would have let her leave jail without paying money. She remains in custody.

A Leavenworth resident spotted the stroller and the baby late on the night of May 3 in an alley about three blocks from Michaud's home. Police estimate the infant had been there at least three hours. He was slightly dehydrated.

Michaud told the judge Monday she was "under the influence" at the time.

since my daughter is a recovering addict (2 years clean) i think i can comment . probably prostition or dealing to support her habit meth or crack habit either one would make her judgement bad hope the judge keeps the kid till she gets herself cleaned up for at least a year. I feel so sorry for the children that have to live with addicted mothers or fathers.

I doubt very much if it had any thing to do with marijuana or herbal tea. More likely just as Swagg stated, crack or meth.
