A woman charged with abandoning her 3-year-old son in a Fife motel room while she went gambling failed to appear for a pretrial hearing Tuesday.
The court ordered two warrants for Sarah Huson’s arrest, said Fife prosecuting attorney John Rodabaugh.
The 22-year-old was charged last month with reckless endangerment, third-degree abandonment of a dependent person, possession of drug paraphernalia and marijuana possession.
Huson’s boyfriend, Scott Weems, was also charged in the incident and also failed to appear in court Tuesday.
Rodabaugh said the court docket shows that a third party called this morning to ask about Huson’s warrant options, and that Weems called to say he would not be able to make the court date due to a medical problem.
The child was put in state custody following the incident.
