After pleading not guilty to charges against her earlier this year, Dawn Walker has now pleaded guilty to three offenses.
Walker entered the guilty pleas at a Saskatoon provincial court on Thursday morning.
She pleaded guilty to abduction in contravention of a custody order, forgery of a passport, and possession of a forged document.
The charges stem from an incident in the summer of 2022 where Walker and her child were reported missing in an area south of Saskatoon near the South Saskatchewan River. However, they would be found safe in Oregon two weeks later.
After her arrest, Walker issued a statement saying she was a victim of domestic violence and had no choice, but to flee the country. Those allegations have never been proven and Saskatoon police previously said they investigated any complaints of domestic violence thoroughly.
UPDATE: A Saskatchewan judge agreed with a joint submission by crown and defence lawyers and handed Walker a 12-month conditional sentence. Walker will also face 18 months of probation following the conclusion of her conditional sentence, will need to complete 150 hours of community service, and must pay a $600 victim surcharge.
Walker still faces charges in the United States which include felony and misdemeanor charges of identity theft.
