HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP) - A mother jailed in an international custody dispute has been paroled from a New Jersey prison.

But Maria Jose Carrascosa remains in custody pending outstanding contempt-of-court orders and possible deportation to Spain.

Carrascosa was convicted of interference with custody and sentenced to 14 years in prison in 2009 after the 48-year-old Fort Lee resident violated a court order to return her daughter to the girl’s father in New Jersey.

The girl was 4 in 2005 when she was taken to Spain without her father’s consent, where she still lives with her grandparents and is now 14.

The child’s father, Peter Innes, tells The Record (https://bit.ly/1qK0nuq ) newspaper he’s decided not to participate in upcoming hearings after fighting for his daughter’s return. Innes says he “wants nothing to do with this woman.”
