Bunnell, FL- A 29-year-old Bunnell woman has pleaded guilty to lesser charges in the kidnapping of her own two children. Sara Jones pleaded guilty to two lesser felony counts of interfering with the custody of a minor and was sentenced to four months in jail, five years’ probation and other restrictions.

Jones is required to carry out in-patient drug treatment. She’s also ordered to have a mental health evaluation and comply with the findings.
Jones can only have contact with the two children according to the dependency court orders, and to refrain from drugs or alcohol. Her probation terms include random drug analysis.
