Sherri Papini, the Northern California mother who was arrested in March of 2022 for faking her own kidnapping, will soon be a free woman.
Papini was moved to a residential reentry management, also known as a halfway house, ahead of her release in October. She was initially set to be released in May 2024.
Papini pleaded guilty to making false statements and mail fraud, after telling law enforcement that she had been abducted by two Hispanic women at gunpoint.
She was sentenced to 18-months in prison followed by 36-months of supervised housing.
According to the Department of Justice, Papini voluntarily stayed with a former boyfriend in Costa Mesa.
