A mother from Charlotte, North Carolina, has been sentenced to seven days in jail for having her daughter baptized without the dad’s consent. According to WSOC-TV, the baptism happened a few years ago when Kendra Stocks and Paul Schaaf were embroiled in a heated custody battle over their daughter. According to court documents, the two definitely butted heads over religion.
The courts reportedly granted Schaaf the final decision-making authority on all legal custody decisions. According to WSOC-TV, that includes religion. In fact, Judge Sean Smith gave the dad full custody “specifically including decisions concerning religion,” the Charlotte Observer reported. Both parents were warned that they must obey the rules or face potential jail time.
Just one day after a judge warned the couple of that, Stocks baptized her daughter, according to court documents. Schaaf found out about it on Facebook.
Court documents state that “the mother has acted selfishly by

A woman who abducted a baby and raised her into adulthood has pleaded guilty for her actions. As CNN reported, 52-year-old Gloria Williams pleaded guilty to kidnapping and interference with custody.
Back in 1998, Williams allegedly posed as a hospital worker in Jacksonville, Florida, and nabbed an infant baby girl. The infant’s biological mother, Shanara Mobley, told authorities that she thought the woman who entered her room was a nurse. When Mobley asked the woman to place the baby in a carrier, she left the room with the newborn.
The child (seen below) was renamed Alexis Manigo, and Williams raised her as her own daughter. Nearly two decades later, the child realized that Williams used fraudulent documents and wasn’t her biological mother. She discovered her true identity when she applied for a job that required a birth certificate and social security information. Her given name at birth was Kamiyah Mobley.
