The woman who pleaded guilty to kidnapping a baby from a Florida hospital hours after she was born was sentenced Friday to 18 years in prison.
Gloria Williams was sentenced to 18 years on Friday - the same length as her deception - after posing as a friendly nurse to stealKamiyah Mobley from a hospital in Jacksonville, Fla., in 1998. Judge Aho handed down the lesser sentence giving Williams credit for 511 days served.
Kamiyah Mobley, now 19, was located in Walterboro, South Carolina, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, which confirmed her identity through DNA testing.
After stealing the newborn, Williams took her to SC, named her Alexis Manigo, and lived as her mother until 2017. Williams pled guilty in a SC courtroom to the charge in February and had accepted a plea agreement. During last month's sentencing hearing, Williams said she didn't tell the girl her true identity until she discovered she couldn't get a driver's license because she didn't have a valid birth certificate or Social Security card.
Kamiyah did not attend Friday's sentencing hearing, according to news reports'.
Kamiyah has spent time with her biological parents but still supports the only mother she knew.

'We can only ask that everyone respect her privacy, give her time to take things in, and continue to pray for the well-being of each and every person whose life has been touched by this nearly 20-year chain of events.
Williams, now 52, raised the newborn as her own and gave her a solid upbringing in rural SC. "It's a very sad case and many people have suffered, including Ms. Williams", Circuit Judge Marianne Aho said just before announcing the sentence.
"I first like to thank God for the safe return of my daughter, Kamiyah". She was suicidal, and is still hurting years later. Prior to making statements at the sentencing hearing about the punishment he would like for Williams, Aiken has said he has kept his feelings about the abductor to himself because it would only serve to drive a wedge between him and his daughter. Despite today's sentence I would like to deal with the emotional toll this ordeal has taken on my family.
"I knew walking into this courtroom this morning that there would be no winners in this situation". The judge did not mention the possibly of parole but did say that Williams "may not profit from her crimes while incarcerated". Williams, who was dressed in medical scrubs, told Aiken she would be right back because she needed to have the baby checked for a fever.
Williams went to the Jacksonville hospital and looked at the babies in the maternity ward before she found the room of Shanara Mobley. Let's go.' I just couldn't.
