    Floribert Nava, 45, is charged with kidnapping, terroristic threats, possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.

    A New Jersey woman has been sentenced to 12 years in prison after admitting she carjacked a teen driver in an attempt to steal a baby the teen had given up for adoption.

      Floribert Nava of Wildwood was sentenced Thursday.
     
    The 48-year-old pleaded guilty in February, admitting that she used a fake gun on March 22, 2013, to carjack the then-17-year-old victim. She tried forcing the teen to drive her from Wildwood to Philadelphia to steal the baby from its adoptive family.
     
    The carjacking was thwarted when the teen victim crashed into a police car on the Ben Franklin Bridge to get a police officer's attention.
     
    The victim told the court Thursday she suffers from depression and fear over the incident, according to The Press of Atlantic City.
