INDIANAPOLIS — Nalah Jackson, the woman charged with kidnapping two Ohio twins last month, has pleaded guilty to an unrelated charge in Marion County.

Jackson pleaded guilty Wednesday to battery by bodily waste. According to court documents, on Dec. 23 Jackson spit in the face of a detention deputy while being scanned.

She received a one year sentence. 60 days will be served in the adult detention center, while 305 days are suspended, according to the Marion County Prosecutor's Office.

Columbus Ohio Police tell WRTV they are currently waiting on Jackson to finish her sentence in Indiana. Once a writ of extradition is received, the transfer process back to Ohio will begin.
