The mother of a missing Lewis County girl has been released on probation again following her third arrest for violating terms of her supervised release.
U.S. District Judge John Preston Bailey heard arguments Tuesday in Wheeling on whether to revoke Lena Lunsford's probation permanently following her latest arrest. Then he sentenced her to time served.
Lunsford was warned repeatedly to stay away from the convicted felon who fathered what will be her eighth child. She met him at a halfway house in Wheeling after her release from prison.
Lunsford served eight months for welfare fraud after her 3-year-old daughter Aliayah disappeared from their Lewis County home in September 2011. The child has never been found.
Lunsford has been held at the Northern Regional Jail since last week.
