Woman Who Kidnapped Biological Twins Wants Visitation Rights

By  | 

A woman who kidnapped her biological twins from their adoptive parents and fled to Canada has asked a judge to grant her visitation.

Allison Quets is scheduled to be in court Wednesday. The twins' parents are challenging Quets' request and have asked a Wake County
judge to close the hearing.

The 50-year-old Quets picked up the toddlers for a scheduled visit in December 2006, but she didn't return them as required by a court agreement.

She pleaded guilty to two counts of international parental kidnapping in September and was sentenced to five years' probation.

Quets is challenging the adoption, saying she was severely ill during her pregnancy and under duress when she relinquished the children after their birth in Florida. The Florida courts have upheld the adoption.
