Massachusetts mom sentenced for letting Parma runaway stay at her home

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A Massachusetts mom was sentenced to a year probation for letting a Parma runaway stay at her Salem home without parental consent.

Renee Hanson's 19-year-son Michael Julien met the 17-year-old girl online.

Hanson then traveled alone to Parma on March 4 to pick up the teen a short distance from her home after her parents were gone.

The two then drove back to Massachusetts.

The teen was reported missing the same day she left and her search involved Parma police and FBI agents in Cleveland and Boston. She was found safe a week later.

Along with probation, Hanson must also pay 75% of $6,602.75 to the city of Parma and 100% of $4552.10 to the teen's family.

Hanson's son Julien has pleaded guilty, but his case is going through a diversion program. If he completes the program successfully, all charges will be dropped.
