Greyhound Bus
Serafina Madrid was sentenced to probation after pleading guilty to transporting and illegal immigrant.

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A Nevada woman won’t serve any jail time for smuggling a toddler from Mexico into the U.S. via Albuquerque.

Serafina Madrid, 35, was sentenced Friday to three years probation.

She was arrested last August after she was confronted by officers at the greyhound bus station in downtown Albuquerque.

Madrid admitted that she was paid $1,200 to take the 16-month-old child from San Diego to her mother in Atlanta.

She says she was going to be paid even more when she dropped the child off.

Madrid pleaded guilty to transporting an illegal immigrant in May.
