PHILADELPHIA (CBS/AP) Bonnie Sweeten, the Philadelphia area mother who is accused of staging the abduction of her daughter and herself, was released Friday evening after family members posted the required 10 percent, or $100,000, of her $1 million bond.
Sweeten's lawyer says that she will be staying with relatives while undergoing mental health treatment this week. She must also be supervised when she visits her three children, including 9-year-old Julia, who she was found with at Disney World in Florida.
