  • A Leavenworth woman accused of leaving her baby alone in an alley failed to report in while on bond as she was supposed to, a court official said.
    District Judge Gunnar Sundby raised the issue at the conclusion of a hearing Thursday for Elizabeth A. Michaud.
    Michaud, who is charged with aggravated endangering a child, was released on her own recognizance Jan. 25. She's required to be on bond supervision.
    Sundby said he'd received a report that Michaud has never shown up as part of her supervision requirement.
    Michaud's attorney, Elaine Halley, said there was a communication problem.
    Sundby said the defendant needed to report to Court Services, which is located in the same building as his courtroom. The judge said at the end of Thursday's hearing that he would send an email to a Court Services official to report that Michaud was on her way.
    Michaud is accused of leaving her infant son alone May 3 in an alley in Leavenworth. Authorities believe she was under the influence of drugs or alcohol the night of the incident.
    Thursday's hearing was held for the purpose of taking up pretrial motions. The trial is scheduled for Feb. 25.
