Suspect Faces Charges for Attempted Kidnapping
BROWNSVILLE – A man accused of abducting his daughter from Brownsville waits for his sentencing after pleading guilty.
He allegedly took his daughter across the border without her mother’s permission.
Thirty-six-year-old Ismail Khaleel al Gebory is charged with international parental abduction.
Documents show he failed to drop-off his 8-year-old daughter with her mom back in February.
According to court documents, al Gebory was trying to get his daughter a passport to Iraq.
Federal authorities used Brownsville bridge surveillance to find out the two had crossed into Mexico.
Al Gebory faces three years in prison. His sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 6.
