A day care provider found intoxicated in her minivan with two small children during a southwest Washington community's Halloween event has resolved her case without jail time.
The Columbian says 45-year-old Sheila K. Michalios of Yacolt has pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted reckless endangerment. Battle Ground Municipal Judge Gregory Gonzales recently gave her 40 hours of community service and said she cannot provide day care for two years. She must also continue with her alcohol treatment.
The 2-year-old boy and 16-month-old girl in the van last Oct. 29 were clients of Michalios' day care business. They were unharmed.
About a month before the incident in Battle Ground, Michalios’ day care license had been revoked by the state Department of Early Learning following allegations that she had imbibed on the job.
