Woman faces sentencing for school abduction, sexual assault


PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Sentencing was expected for a former day care worker convicted of abducting a 5-year-old girl from her school classroom and sexually assaulting her during a 19-hour ordeal.

Christina Regusters was scheduled for sentencing Friday in Philadelphia. Her sentencing has been postponed three times as her lawyers waited on psychological reports, but online records show Friday's sentencing was still scheduled.

Prosecutors say the 21-year-old donned a Muslim dress and veil to impersonate the girl's mother and take her from Bryant Elementary School in January 2013, then posed as three different people to trick the blindfolded child.

The girl was found half-naked the next morning at a cold, dark playground.

A jury convicted Regusters in September on charges including kidnapping, aggravated assault and indecent deviate sexual intercourse.

Prosecutors want a life sentence.
