A Kane County judge has handed down a three-year prison sentence to a grandmother who forged a court document to kidnap her grandson from Aurora. In the ruling Thursday, 42-year-old Jeanie Ann Andrews, who lists addresses in Florida and Indiana, also was barred from contact with her grandson as part of her guilty plea to one count of kidnapping.

The day before she was arrested, requested custody of her daughter's 8-year-old son.

The judge rejected her request, but prosecutors said Andrews used the judge's signature to create a document that indicated the judge had granted her custody.

Police arrested her as she was allegedly driving the boy out of town.
