Regusters Convicted of Kidnapping, Molesting West Philadelphia Kindergartener
Less than 24 hours after it began deliberating the case against Christina Regusters, a Philadelphia jury today found her guilty of kidnapping a five-year-old girl from her West Philadelphia kindergarten class early last year, molesting her, then leaving her the following morning in an Upper Darby playground, clad only in a t-shirt, to be found by a passerby.
Regusters (top photo), now 21, was arrested in early 2013 following an extensive manhunt that included police distribution of surveillance video from the Bryant Elementary School showing a woman, dressed head to toe in black Muslim garb, coming to the school and leaving with the child.
School officials say the woman, her face covered by a traditional niqab, identified herself as the girl's mother before checking the girl out of class on that cold January morning last year.
