Woman convicted of taking baby at mall gets 1 1/2 to 7 years

A woman convicted of befriending another woman at the King of Prussia Mall and then taking her baby has been sentenced to 1 1/2 to seven years in prison.

33-year-old Cherie Amoore, of Wayne, was convicted in March of kidnapping and child concealment in the March 2016 events at the King of Prussia Mall. A Montgomery County judge imposed the sentence late Monday afternoon.

Prosecutors say Amoore struck up a conversation with the child's mother and then took him when the mother was distracted by another child. Amoore's lawyer says she has since received mental health treatment.
