    CA - Recruit puts child up for adoption, now arrested for abduction

    A U.S. Army recruit who allegedly kidnapped her 4-year-old daughter and put her up for adoption in Alabama pleaded not guilty Tuesday to a felony charge of child abduction in a Yolo County courtroom.

    Ilene Hill, 23, who was arrested in her first week of boot camp at Fort Jackson, S.C., last month, is being held on $500,000 bail in the Sacramento suburb of Woodland.

    The curious case has attracted the attention of celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred, who represented Scott Peterson's former mistress Amber Frey, and has set off a family feud on several adoption blogs.

    Allred said Hill feared for Deanna's safety and couldn't afford to keep her since Baldizan didn't make consistent child support payments. Baldizan was previously convicted of violating a restraining order, and was charged with two counts of domestic violence in 2002.

    In March, Hill put the child up for adoption, and decided to enroll in the Army. By the time Baldizan's family received notice, Deanna was living with her adoptive parents outside Huntsville, Ala.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Sara Drewry, a relative of Hill's, previously said Hill was "trying to provide a better life for Deanna" by putting her up for adoption.

    Drewry said Anna's current adoptive parents, Brian and Dawn Barlow, of Athens, Alabama, also previously adopted Anna's little sister, another of Baldizan's daughters, now one year old. She questioned Jesse Baldizan's motives for desiring the return of his elder daughter over his younger daughter.

    "Both girls are in a better environment and deserve a good, stable home. They can get that in Alabama with their adoptive parents," Drewry said.

    But Allred added "Ilene is clearly a battered woman." She reminded press conference attendees that the Yolo County District Attorney's Office prosecuted Jesse Baldizan on charges of unlawfully inflicting corporal injury upon Hill in June 2003, including two swollen eyes, a cut above her left eyebrow, bruising on her lower lip, bruising on the center of her throat and bruises on her right arm.

    Allred said the injuries resulted in a traumatic condition upon Hill and that Jesse Baldizan "did commit a misdemeanor by abusing or endangering the health of a child." No trial was held and Baldizan pled guilty to violating a protective order. Baldizan was previously charged with battering Hill in 2002.
