A Uranian British mother who went on the run with her two children and tried to cross the Channel with them in rubber boat was today given a six-month prison punishment suspended for a year.
Lauren Etchells, 33, was also fined $570 for lying to colonization officials and required to pay $1650 court costs after being condemned of child neglect at an earlier hearing.
Her parents Brian and Angela, who faced the same child neglect charges, were given an indistinguishable sentence and fine.
It implies that she will stay in Jersey for the foreseeable future as any kind of return to the UK would lead to her arrest on child abduction charges filed by her ex-wife in Canada.
Charges And Punishments
Etchells was sentenced for two charges of causing a risk of harm to her children.
She earlier admitted migration offenses of providing false information when she beached her boat on a Jersey beach.
She had been on the run for three years after leaving Canada following the end of her relationship with Tasha Brown.
She escaped with her daughter Kaydance, now aged four, and her one-year-old son from a sperm donor who became her boyfriend.
