Sentencing Today In Kidnap Of Baby Raised In Connecticut

NEW YORK (AP) _ A woman who snatched a newborn baby from a New York hospital more than two decades ago and raised her as her own is awaiting sentencing.

Ann Pettway will face a Manhattan federal court judge on Monday afternoon.

She pleaded guilty to a kidnapping charge in February.

During her court appearance then, the 51-year-old Pettway offered details of the 1987 kidnapping. She said she took a train from her Connecticut home to Harlem Hospital, where she scooped up Carlina White, a 3-week-old baby who had been brought to the emergency room by her parents.

As part of Pettway’s plea bargain, prosecutors recommended between 10 and 121/2 years in prison.
Carlina’s birth mother, Joy White, says Pettway robbed her of 23 years with her child.
