Missouri woman facing felony charges for child abduction

When it comes to their children, parents may not always act rationally. If someone tries to take a child away from a parent, that individual may feel the need to take drastic actions in order to keep the child. However, if those actions are illegal, it is possible for felony charges to result.

It was recently reported that a Missouri woman was taken into custody after a missing child was found in the attic of her house. According to reports, the child had been reported missing in August after his mother did not return him to his father. In October, an endangered person advisory was issued. The advisory was issued because it was suspected that the child was around his mother's boyfriend, who was ordered by the court to stay away from the child.

Authorities conducted a search on a home earlier this month after receiving a tip, and during that search, they found the child in the home's attic. As a result, the woman is being held on a warrant for felony child abduction in the county where the child went missing, and charges are pending in the county where they were found. The woman's boyfriend was also taken into custody on unspecific charges.

Felony charges of any kind should be taken seriously. The woman charged in this Missouri case will undoubtedly want to make sure that she understands the legal defense avenues available to her. It may seem overwhelming to have to address criminal charges, but taking a proactive approach to handling her case may be wise.
