The Gibson County woman who faked her own abduction has been sentenced to probation.
23-year-old Hannah Potts pleaded guilty to false informing. According to the Gibson County Sheriff, Potts stagged her own disappearance in July 2020.
In the original affidavit, Investigators reported Potts hid at a friend's home, after posting an audio clip to Facebook that "indicated that she had been abducted from near her residence while taking pictures of animals."
When deputies found Potts, she admitted to planning the fake kidnapping for research for a manuscript she was writing.
On Wednesday, Potts was sentenced to 360 days in jail. However, the judge suspended the sentence for probation. Potts will have to complete 120 hours of community service and pay a $10 fine on top of a couple hundred dollars in court fees.
Two others have been charged for their part in the abduction hoax.
