Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara stated that the woman is expected to appear in the Manhattan federal court on Monday January 24, 2011 to face the charges against her.
Previously Pettway was on probation in North Carolina due to a conviction for attempted embezzlement violated that probation calling for a warrant for her arrest.
The kidnapped child, now a woman of 23 years of age is one Carlina White who the story says was long suspicious of Pettway as not being her real mother and living under the name of Nejdra Nance she grew up in Connecticut
The authorities are deciding whether the federal authorities should take up the case because of the issue of the statute of limitations as they might have expired in the state of New York. There is no statue of limitations regarding federal missing child cases.
