Johnson was given a more than 5-year sentence in 2012 for custodial interference and unlawful imprisonment in the 2009 disappearance of her then-8-month-old son, Gabriel. The baby has never been found.

A jury deadlocked on a kidnapping charge, the most serious count against Johnson, who turns 28 later this month.

Johnson maintained her story that she gave Gabriel away to a couple in Texas.

Johnson was credited for almost three years spent in jail awaiting trial and now faces four years' probation.
