Woman who snatched infant in 1987 charged with kidnapping

A woman suspected of snatching an infant from a New York hospital in 1987 has been indicted on federal kidnapping charges, according to court papers released today.

Ann Pettway was indicted in Manhattan Federal Court and has previously admitted to taking Carlina Renae White from a Harlem hospital after several miscarriages.

White tracked down her birth family in early January, saying she had a nagging feeling all her life that she was brought up by a family she didn't belong to.

  1. Military surrogatemoms

    Why must loyal spouses of an overstressed military sell their child services from the womb? Just to make ends meet? Liberals are more worried about their hair color.. Triple defense spending. Wall street has the money. Put america back to work and restore the repect of the starving military surrogate females. What tea party can ignore the call of respect. These are people who have every need for drug abuse but are just a beer on weekends.End the abuse and make us proud.

    When you're that ugly, the odds of a random, stolen kid being as ugly are slim. She should have known that no kid is going to believe that they are half wildebeest forever

    Good. I hope she is convicted and punished severely for all the hurt and mental anguish she has caused this girl's family...not to mention robbing the child of her rightful place...with her birth parents! I just hope she wasn't damaged too badly by this selfish woman's actions.
