Elizabeth Johnson, the mother at the center of a high profile case surrounding the disappearance of her 8-month-old son, is set to be released from jail for a second time.

Johnson was captured and returned to Arizona in March after she admitted she skipped town and traveled to New Mexico, which is a violation of her probation.

Johnson was ordered to spend 20 days behind bars and, once released, must wear a GPS ankle monitor. The judge ordered her released from jail no sooner than April 21.

Johnson had served 5 years for custodial interference. She admitted that she took her son, known to the general public as “Baby Gabriel,” to Texas and gave him to a couple at a San Antonio park.

Police were never able to confirm her story or find Gabriel.

Once Johnson is released from jail, she will be under probation until July of 2018.

A judge warned her that if she violates any more terms of her condition of probation then she could face fines and prison time.
