Bianca Jean Hazelrigg, 21, of Bagley, charged with gross misdemeanor endangerment of a child by putting them in a position that could cause them harm or death, appeared Monday before Beltrami County District Judge Paul Benshoof.

Her hearing was continued until Aug. 20, but during her appearance, Benshoof granted a request to allow Hazelrigg, who is out on bail, to move back in with her boyfriend and the four children she is accused of leaving unattended in a hot car for nearly 30 minutes.

After Beltrami County Attorney Tim Faver said he did not object to the request, Benshoof said he would allow Hazelrigg to move back in with the children but ordered her to maintain contact with Clearwater County Human Services and follow its recommendations.

"I'm willing to do anything," Hazelrigg told the judge.
