A 19-year-old Moncton woman has been sentenced to a two-year conditional sentence and 12 months of house arrest in connection with the disappearance of a 13-year-old girl last year.
Leticia Skye Chappell previously pleaded guilty to several charges, including sexual assault, abduction, perjury and breaching an undertaking to have no contact with the girl, who can't be identified due to a publication ban.
Chappell was reportedly in a consensual sexual relationship with the young girl, but the age of consent is 16.
In May 2011, the 13-year-old girl ran away from home and was missing for two weeks.
Her disappearance prompted the Codiac Regional RCMP, Tri-County Ground Search and Rescue, police dogs and an RCMP helicopter to search in her neighbourhood leading to the Champlain Place Mall in Dieppe.
Chappell will also be listed as a registered sex offender for 10 years.
Chappell's mother, Tammy Chappell, is facing charges of abduction and public mischief in connection with the case.
Meanwhile, a family friend, Jodi Lynn Beaulieu, previously pleaded guilty to abduction and was given a two-year conditional sentence with eight months of house arrest.
The girl had stayed at Beaulieu's home, the court heard.
