Eau Claire woman pleads guilty to helping juveniles escape from Eau Claire Academy
An Eau Claire woman has pleaded guilty to two counts of interfering with custody- beyond visitation after helping juveniles escape from the Eau Claire Academy.
Eau Claire Court documents show Ashlynn Alsteen pleaded guilty Monday to both counts. The court says a deferred prosecution agreement was made.
The original criminal complaint shows juveniles at the Academy, a residential treatment facility for troubled youth, told investigators that Alsteen planned to help them escape. Alsteen was alleged to harboring them for a night before taking them to Superior.
Alsteen’s deferred prosecution agreement hearing is scheduled for Feb. 9, 2023.
