DETROIT - On Monday afternoon, 32-year-old Domanique Marie Rezende faced a judge through a video monitor for the first time since her arrest.
Police said Rezende lied about somebody kidnapping her 4-year-old son after the suspect drove off with her car on Sunday afternoon.
It all happened at a store on Joy Road when Rezende called police. Rezende said she was inside the store and left her car running. Minutes later, the suspect drove off, but she claimed her 4-year-old child was inside the car.
Shortly after, police started a search, but later found out the child was with his grandmother.
Rezende was arrested at the scene. She is charged with false report of a child abuse. A judge gave Rezende a $7,500 bond. She is required to pay 10 percent of that bond. She could face up to four years in prison.
