Baby Gabriel's mom back in court on alleged probation violations

Court records reveal the probation violations against Johnson are not related to the case of missing Baby Gabriel. 

PHOENIX - Elizabeth Johnson, the mom who made headlines across the nation after her 8-month-old son went missing in 2009, will stand before a judge at Superior Court for allegedly violating probation.

Court records reveal the probation violations against Johnson are not related to the case of missing Baby Gabriel.

Authorities brought Johnson back to Arizona from New Mexico for the hearing. Those records show she left the state, married a known felon and never told her parole officer, and failed to inform probation officers when she had contact with police.

Johnson's lawyer, Marc Victor, told 12 News that he didn't argue for her release, so she's been held without bond since the end of last week.

"Normally a judge will want to see some time as punishment for those violations," Victor said. "They're technical violations. There's no allegations of new crimes."

This week, authorities released a picture of what Gabriel might look like now. He was 8 months old when he vanished back in 2009 and is now closing in on his seventh birthday.

An age-progressed photo of Baby Gabriel, who vanished at age 8 months, and in April of 2016 would be approaching his seventh birthday.

Johnson was released from prison in 2014 after serving about 17 months. She was sentenced to more than five years on interference and imprisonment convictions.

Authorities say Gabriel was last seen with Johnson in December of 2009, in San Antonio, Texas.
