The mother who left her infant unattended in a vehicle at the University of Guam parking lot is a free woman at least for now.
26-year-old Elizabeth Lienhardt Taisacan was arrested following the discovery of her 6-month old baby alone in a car on Friday, Oct. 18 at around 4:30 p.m.
Thankfully the infant was unharmed and was taken into the custody of Child Protective Services. Taisacan was subsequently arrested on offenses of Leaving a Child Unattended in a Motor Vehicle, Child Abuse and Family Violence.
But the Office of the Attorney General has decided not to pursue charges at this time, making Taisacan a free woman.
According to OAG Spokeswoman Carlina Charfauros, Taisacan was released from DOC custody and issued a notice to appear one year from the date of the summons.
But this raises the question: What factors led to the OAG not charging Taisacan at this time? Charfauros indicated that the case is active so the specifics of the case still can’t be disclosed.
