Woman argues 'Double Jeopardy' in custody kidnapping case

RIDGWAY - A Ridgway woman charged with removing her daughter from the father's custody and driving the child some 1,000 miles from home, was in Elk County Court Thursday calling for the charges against her to be dismissed claiming a previous sentence handed down in connection with the case constituted double jeopardy which states that a defendant, once found guilty, cannot be tried for the same crime twice.
