The Side-eye: Carlina White’s “Mom” Claims She Raised Her, But Did Not Kidnap Her…

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Babies, Baby Mama Drama, Cry Me A River

Wait for it, waaaait for iiiiit…YOU NEED MORE PEOPLE!

The fake mom charged with snatching a newborn from a Manhattan hospital 23 years ago simply raised the girl after someone else kidnapped her, her lawyer said yesterday.

“We don’t deny she raised her,” Ann Pettway’s public defender, Robert Baum, said in Manhattan federal court. “The question is whether she was kidnapping her or the baby was given to her.”

Baum said he was trying to find a woman seen by five witnesses wandering around Harlem Hospital in a nurse’s uniform at about the time of Carlina White’s abduction in 1987.

He said that police, thinking they knew exactly when Carlina vanished, accepted the woman’s alibi but that the presumed timeline might not have been accurate.

Baum’s comments came after a brief but dramatic court hearing in which Pettway, 49, found herself face to face with real mom Joy White for the first time since the Jan. 23 arrest.

After hearing the not-guilty plea, a sobbing White ducked into a bathroom to compose herself.

Listen lady, we hear the story you’re trying to spin, but if you don’t drop dime on who gave you that baby back in 1987 then you’re going to jail for a lonnnnng time.

Do you believe Ann Pettway’s story???

    Don’t believe it because any woman in their right mind that receive a newborn baby from someone would ask for a birth cerificate and more information; so they can properly take care of the child. Come ON NOW… I’m not even a mother and I know all the paper work you need for a baby; due to my nieces and nephews… I remember an incident that made my sister curse everyone out at the doctor’s office because the lady at the desk ask my sister; How can you prove that your the mother? WTF! And she had my niece birth certificate, social security card, medical card and her ID… so you telling me; she never asked for any of these documents to get the baby now grown woman what she needs… How did she get her in school? I mean; come ON!

      You have made no sense of what so ever.

    She’s lying. She’s forgetting that her own kinfolk done said on TV she was preggers and she came home with a baby which was Carlina. She better take a plea and cut down that time.

    Don’t believe her, the police sketch shown on the news from eye witness accounts back in 87 look strikingly similar to this woman

    • DAMN DAMN DAMN

      She had a mustache back then too?

    • Trublu

      DEAD LMAO! but actually she did!!!! When they first aired this story a few weeks ago they were showing footage from the hospital interviewing her real parents and showed a police sketch of the suspect and that woman had a dayum mustache! I was like oh hell yeah that’s you… shape up and all!

    LIE. If I was innocent and knew that I was about to go to jail for a kidnapping I didn’t commit, I’d fess up with names, dates, descriptions immediately. Did a stranger just walk up and place a baby in her hands? If so, why didn’t she say anything about it? If she can’t provide evidence about who gave her the baby, her a$$ should go to jail.

  • whatisthat

    HELL NO!!!

  • DubCgal

    Puh-Leese-Bish! And that’s all I’ve got to say about the story..NEXT

    First of all , it doesn’t matter what type of atmosphere she was stolen from let alone not all part of ny is ghetto if u aint never been there u have no room to comment on it , but regardless of what situation she was in , that does NOT give anyone to steal someone else’s child , I know for a fact that if someone stole my child , they probably wouldn’t have live to see another day, I HOPE and PRAY ANN PETTWAY gets life in jail period point blank because she knew exactly what she was doing!
