FARMINGTON — A Farmington woman accused of kidnapping an Oklahoma teenager has been released from an Oklahoma jail.

Kristen "Kriste" Aragon, 35, was released on her recognizance following an Oct. 24 hearing in Pittsburg County District Court in Oklahoma, according to court documents.

She is accused of felony counts of kidnapping, solicitation for child pornography and lewd or indecent proposal to a minor.

Aragon allegedly drove to a residence outside of McAlester in southeastern Oklahoma on April 16 and picked up a 14-year-old boy, then drove back to her residence in Farmington, according to The Daily Times archives.

She also allegedly made a lewd proposal to the victim to have intercourse with her, along with allegedly requesting that the victim send her a picture of himself that is considered child pornography.

Matthew Sheets, Aragon's court-appointed attorney, said District Judge Tim Mills didn't feel Aragon needed to be in jail since the prosecution asked for a continuance in the case.

Her bond previously had been set at $35,000.
