A former Niagara Falls resident pleaded guilty Monday in federal court to a charge of international parental kidnapping.

Tricia Griffith, 37, told U. S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara that she took her child from a residence to Jamaica in June 2010 without the knowledge of the child’s father and in violation of a court order of custody issued previously by a State Supreme Court justice.

She was arrested several months later at JFK International Airport in New York City by agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement when she returned to the United States without the child.

The child remains outside of the United States.

Griffith faces sentencing March 16 and could receive a maximum penalty of three years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
