PHOENIX -- A woman who is considering a run for an Arizona legislative seat is being accused by authorities in Pima County of helping another woman abduct her child from Child Protective Services in Tucson.

The charges against Crystal Nuttle of Glendale stem from a custodial interference incident on July 26.

Police tell KVOA that one woman entered a secured facility where Teketa Riley was visiting her child during a supervised visit and created a disturbance.

Police say the women then fled with the child in a car owned by Nuttle. The child was later found safe.

Nuttle tells The Arizona Republic that the boy was allegedly being abused in his foster home. Nuttle, a critic of the agency, says she couldn't stand to see that go on anymore.
