Carlee Russell Guilty Of Faking Kidnapping

(Hoover, AL) — Carlee Russell is being found guilty of faking her own abduction. Back in July, Russell called Alabama police claiming she saw a toddler walking on the side of the highway before she disappeared for more than 48 hours. A few weeks after returning home, she admitted she made up a fake story about being kidnapped. On Wednesday, a judge found her guilty of false reporting to law enforcement and falsely reporting an incident and recommended a one-year jail sentence.
