Kidnap hoax mom due in court this morning

Inquirer staff writer Allison Steele reports from Orlando:

Bonnie Sweeten is due in a Florida state court this morning for a hearing on Bucks County's request that she be returned to Pennsylvania to face charges she faked her and her daughter's kidnapping and used a friend's license to buy airline tickets for a flight to Disney World.

Bucks County detectives are in Orlando, ready to return Sweeten, 38, of Feasterville,  to Pennsylvania if she waives extradition.

The charges against Sweeten of false reporting and identity theft are misdemeanors, but officials are investigating more serious allegations that she stole hundreds of thousands of dollars in her capacity as a parlegal and notary.
