Kamiyah Mobley’s Family: No Winners in This Situation

Kamiyah Mobley’s Family: No Winners in This Situation

The woman who abducted a newborn from a Jacksonville, Florida, hospital in July 1998 and went on to raise the girl as her own for 18 years was sentenced to prison on Friday.

Gloria Williams received an 18-year sentence for kidnapping and five years for interfering with custody. At last month's hearing she said Williams should receive the death sentence, something she would never be eligible for.

Gloria Williams pleaded guilty earlier this year to posing as a hospital employee on July 10, 1998, taking 8- pound 2-ounce Kamiyah Mobley from her mother's arms, walking out of the hospital and driving to SC.

The baby was only hours old when a woman, dressed as a nurse in a flowered smock and green hospital trousers, abducted her from her mother's room, according to the 1998 incident report.

Williams raised Kamiyah - who grew up as Alexis Manigo - in SC until her arrest in 2017.

Williams didn't tell the girl about her identity until the then teen learned she couldn't get her driver's license because she didn't have a valid birth certificate or Social Security card. Aho said many people had suffered in the case, including Williams. Her paternal grandmother told News4Jax that she did not attend Friday's sentencing because she did not want to have to decide whether to sit with her birth family or the family that raised her.

Coins other than Pundi X seem to have been transferred to a wallet at another decentralized cryptocurrency exchange, Etherdelta. Bitcoin is now trading at $6,752 - down from an all-time peak of almost $20,000 in the week before Christmas.

In a separate interview with Kamiyah Mobley, The Post & Courier reported that after learning the truth about her identity and meeting her birth mother, she began calling Shanara Mobley, "Mom". The 52-year-old Williams testified that she wore scrubs to look like a nurse and put the infant in a bag and secreted her out of the hospital.

Williams, now 52, raised the newborn as her own and gave her a solid upbringing in rural SC.

The sentiment echoes what the judge said shortly before announcing the sentence.

Authorities said that Mobley was abducted by a woman who was posing as a nurse. She was suicidal, and is still hurting years later. Williams said she was coping with depression and an abusive relationship. Despite today's sentence I would like to deal with the emotional toll this ordeal has taken on my family.

In a statement released to Action News Jax, Aiken agreed with the judge's winners and losers comment. "At this time I chose to remain focused on mending my family together in this situation".

"I just want to thank God", Velma Aiken said. The judge did not mention the possibly of parole but did say that Williams "may not profit from her crimes while incarcerated". "Glad it is all over with".
