Spokane mother pleads not guilty to child abuse charges

Leslie Baker, the Spokane woman accused of abusing her eight-year-old son, pleaded not guilty to those charges at her arraignment Monday.

Baker was accidentally let out of the Spokane jail before she posted bail earlier this month due to a clerical error.

Baker’s son was removed from her custody in June, after an initial arrest led to misdemeanor assault charges for Baker in municipal court.
