A white California woman who styled herself on social media as a “mom influencer” has been ordered to spend three months in prison for falsely accusing a Latino couple of attempting to kidnap her children.

Authorities said both the accused couple and store surveillance video “resoundingly contradicted” the account given to them by Sorensen.

The DA, Carla Rodriguez, said the verdict against and prison sentence for Sorensen held her “accountable for her crime”.

“Our hope is that this measure … will help provide some closure to the couple that was falsely accused of having attempted to kidnap two young children,” Rodriguez added.

“I don’t think she had any understanding of how this would spread and the impact it would cause,” Dresrow said.

The couple, Sadie and Eddie Martinez, told the Petaluma Argus-Courier newspaper that they had gone to Michaels that day simply to buy Christmas decorations.

Prosecutors charged Sorensen with three misdemeanor counts of making a false report of a crime after her arrest in 2021. »

The court’s decision to throw out President Joe Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan is merely the latest example.
