Farmington mom withdraws guilty plea
By: Heartland News
FARMINGTON, Mo. - A Farmington mom changes her plea in a bizarre child abandonment case.
Elizabeth Thomas withdrew her not guilty plea and entered what's called an Alford plea. That means she agrees the prosecutor has enought evidence to convict her.
A group of teenagers found the five-week-old baby girl last year still strapped in her carseat.
Police found Thomas' name and address in the carseat and tracked her down.
The baby is said to be doing well and has been placed with the Division of Family Services.
