Baby Kidnapping: no parole for Valérie Poulin-Collins

Valérie Poulin-Collins, the young woman who is serving a prison sentence for the kidnapping of a baby last May in the hospital in Trois-Rivières (Québec), will not be released at this time, the parole committee have ruled.

After pleading guilty, Valerie Poulin-Collins was sentenced in October to a two-year stretch in jail, plus probation for three years.

On May 26, 2015, Valérie Poulin-Collins entered a hospital room dressed as a nurse and stated she had to perform medical examinations on baby Victoria (the newborn daughter of Simon Boisclair and Melissa McMahon).

It was only minutes later that the parents understood their baby had been taken.

An Amber Alert was then launched and significant research initiated.

It was thanks to the vigilance of four young adults in Trois-Rivières, who recognized the pictures of the thief posted on Facebook and contacted the police, the little Victoria was found.
