Woman accused of practicing midwifery illegally enters not guilty plea in Yates

The Penn Yan woman accused of performing midwifery without a licensed pleaded not guilty in Yates County Court on Tuesday.

Elizabeth Catlin, who was indicted on 95 charges, including criminally negligent homicide – entered the not guilty plea in court.



She was arrested in 2018 for posing as a midwife and exploiting pregnant women, according to state police.

Supporters of Catlin appeared in local court when she had an appearance in 2019.

Prosecutors say she caused the death of a newborn in 2018.

Catlin is free on bail at this time.
