A Wausau-area babysitter accused of leaving children home alone is facing additional charges.
Rhonda Piehl is accused of leaving several young children alone at her Wausau-area home on two separate occasions in April as she ran errands.
She stood mute so a judge entered not guilty pleas on her behalf to 11 child neglect charges and two counts of being an unlicensed child care provider.
Piehl has said she made a bad decision but quote "sometimes you have to do what you have to do." She cannot care for children anymore and must not have any contact with the children or their parents.
Piehl told investigators she left to drop off a prescription at a nearby elementary school and go to the bank.
A pre-trial conference is set for August 25th.
