Woman Pleads Guilty to Charges for Kidnapping Union City Girl
The Waterford Township woman charged with kidnapping a Union City girl and taking her to Florida appeared in front of a judge Wednesday to enter a plea.
Joanna Kelley, 32, pleaded guilty to concealment of the whereabouts of a child and intimidation of a witness or victim.
Kelley is accused of taking Annalise McGuire, 14, and a boy, 16, to Florida without parental consent.
Prosecutors said Kelley wrote an 8-page letter to the teenager while in prison.
In that letter, Kelley is accused of asking the teen to make criminal allegations against her father and to testify in her favor.
