Woman Accused Of Kidnapping Biological Twins To Be Sentenced

By  | 

A woman accused of kidnapping her biological twins from their adoptive parents and taking them to Canada last year is scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday.

Allison Quets pleaded guilty to two counts of international parental kidnapping in September. The charges carry a maximum penalty of three years in prison. Quets has already served the minimum sentence.

Quets said she signed adoption papers under duress after suffering medical problems during her pregnancy. She unsuccessfully
challenged the legality of the adoption in Florida but was granted
visitation on appeal.

Quets had a court-sanctioned visit with the 17-month-old twins the weekend before Christmas, but she didn't return the toddlers. She was arrested in Ottawa, Ontario on December 22, 2006.
