LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) _ A northeast Kansas woman is free on bond after a not guilty plea was entered on her behalf for allegedly leaving her 2-month-old son in an alley.

District Judge Gunnar Sundby entered the plea Friday for 28-year-old Elizabeth A. Michaud of Leavenworth. Michaud's attorney said her client needs treatment and wasn't able to help with her defense.

The Leavenworth Times reports (http://bit.ly/PllGER ) a pretrial conference is scheduled for Nov. 30.

Michaud is charged with aggravated endangering a child after she allegedly left her son alone May 3 in a Leavenworth alley near her home. Prosecutors believe she was using drugs or alcohol at the time.

Leavenworth police chief Pat Kitchens estimated the baby was in the alley for at least three hours before he was found by a neighbor.
