A Nevada woman, formerly of New Jersey, was arrested on suspicion of abducting her daughter during a custody dispute more than 25 years ago, authorities told a New York Criminal Lawyer.
The 57-year-old woman of Incline Village, Nevada, was arrested in October 2010, according to a New York Criminal Lawyer. She is accused of leaving a courthouse in Somerville, New Jersey, with her 6-year-old daughter, during a custody hearing on August 23, 1984.
During the hearing, the girl’s father had full custody of the child, New Jersey prosecutors told a New York Criminal Lawyer. The mother failed to appear for an arraignment on charges of interference with custody and a warrant was issued for her arrest on June 28, 1985.
There was no real break in the case until the daughter, now 32 years of age, attempted to change her name in order to obtain a marriage license. A background check revealed the daughter’s name in a list of missing children.
When the authorities came, the mother eventually admitted her true identity. As for the daughter, she apparently did not even know she had been abducted or that her mother was wanted by the police, sources told a Brooklyn Criminal Lawyer. It is not known why the daughter was attempting to change her name, either. New Jersey prosecutors will extradite the mother from Nevada. She was held at a county detention facility in Nevada on a no-bail warrant until the extradition is executed.
