The Pennsylvania woman who resurfaced last month after being missing for 11 years has been sentenced to nearly a year in a Florida county jail, a court clerk said Wednesday.
Brenda Heist, 54, was ordered to serve 364 days for violating probation, said Lisa Ates, senior court clerk for the Santa Rosa County Circuit Court in Florida.
Heist had been reported missing in Pennsylvania in 2002.
On February 15, before she admitted she was the missing woman, Heist was arrested in Florida for falsely using the driver’s license of a woman for whom she had previously worked as a cleaning lady, according to police documents.
Heist was living under the name Kelsie Smith.
