Former Daycare Worker Pleads Guilty To Leaving Child In Van

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

A former daycare worker pleads guilty to leaving a young boy in a hot van in a movie theater parking lot.

Michelle Asby, a former employee of the now shut down Tot Town Daycare, was set to appear before a jury on Tuesday, but court documents show Asby changed her plea to guilty in November on a misdemeanor count of negligent endangerment. A second count of failure to report known or suspected child abuse or neglect was dropped.

Court documents show Asby and her former boss, Melanie Hoke, claim they thought the child was with them when they entered a Missoula movie theater with 22 other children.

Asby will spend six months on probation. Depending on her behavior during probation she could request to have the charges dropped.
