Genevieve Kelley - NH mom who fled with daughter in custody fight - freed from jail

The Associated Press

HAVERHILL (AP) — A mother who fled the U.S. with her daughter to Central America more than a decade ago amid a custody dispute with her ex-husband has been released from jail after five months.

Genevieve Kelley pleaded guilty in June to a misdemeanor charge of custodial interference for taking her then-8-year-old daughter out of the country in 2004. Felony custodial interference and witness tampering charges were dropped.

The 52-year-old Kelley began a 10-month sentence in September. The Caledonian Record reports she was released on Feb. 17 on pretrial confinement credit and good behavior.

Her current husband, Scott Kelley, pleaded guilty to the same charge and served a five-month sentence.

The Kelleys said they took the girl to protect her after accusing her father, Mark Nunes, of abuse. Nunes was investigated, but never charged.
