Carlee Russell, the Alabama woman who faked a kidnapping to win back her ex-boyfriend kidnapped, has pleaded guilty to criminal charges.

Carlee pleaded guilty two misdemeanor counts for filing a false police report and has been placed on supervised probation for 12 months.

Carlee made a call to 911 and claimed she’d spotted a toddler walking along the highway. She claimed she had been taken by a man and a woman but eventually managed to escape.

Carlee has also been ordered to repay almost $18,000 in restitution to the city of Hoover, complete 100 hours of community service and continue receiving mental health counseling.

“I want to genuinely apologize for my actions and the resulting negative impact inflicted onto others,” she said in court.

“I made a grave mistake while trying to fight through various emotional issues and stress,” she said. “I’m extremely remorseful for the panic, fear and various range of negative emotions that were experienced across the nation.”
