Mother given 9 months for abducting child

Thu, 04 Nov 2010

A mother who was convicted of abducting her own son and taking him to Canada has been sentenced to 9 months in Prison.

The woman who can only be identified as Miss A appeared at Douglas courthouse this morning after a jury found her guilty.

Deemster Birkett told Douglas Courthouse that it was a "highly unusual case" with "difficult family circumstances" stretching back a number of years.

Miss A has denied the charges throughout the trial and claimed she took the boy through necessity to prevent him coming to harm.

The boy is currently in foster care.
