In 2008, Chrystal Abren Lopez kidnapped her then 9-year-old daughter, Damaris, and fled to Mexico.
It launched a law enforcement search for Damaris.
Finally last year Lopez returned to the United States with her daughter who is now 14-years-old.
Friday morning in Yuma Superior Court she pleaded guilty to false reporting, and perjury.
As part of a plea deal three of the five counts she was charged with were dropped.
Damaris' father, Rey Herrera made a victim statement in court saying "I don't want to take my daughter away from her (Lopez), but i don't want it to happen again. Even though I fear she might take her away from me. I want to let her know I don't want to take our daughter away from her."
After he spoke, Lopez's defense attorney tried to justify her client's actions.
Judge Nelson ordered her to pay the Yuma Police Department $10,000.00 for the emergency services they used looking for her daughter.
Lopez's admission to perjury has given her a sentence time of about 36 months of supervised probation.
as for her guilty plea to false reporting... she was sentenced to 300 days in jail, 296 of those she has already served and received credit for. so in about three days she'll walk away a free woman.
