Accused kidnapper released despite state's attempts to hold her

Posted: Updated:

The state of Vermont released new evidence in hopes of keeping a Manchester woman behind bars.

Patricia Kane, 50, was arrested on charges of interfering with the custody of a minor in January. Police say she took her son from his foster home in Vermont. It triggered an Amber Alert for the 12-year-old boy. Kane and her son were later found in New Hampshire.

Wednesday, Deputy State's Attorney Christina Rainville presented evidence that a French court convicted Kane of kidnapping the child when they lived in France and she might run off again.

The Rutland Herald reports the presiding judge agreed with the defense attorney that Kane would not flee. Both reasoned it was because she has to do daily check-ins with the Manchester Police and has yet to run.
