A 43-year-old Japanese woman pleaded no contest Monday to a felony charge of concealing her 9-year-old daughter from the girl’s father and agreed to return her to the United States, in a case involving child custody problems arising from a failed international marriage.

As part of the plea agreement reached at a court in Wisconsin, the child must be returned to her father in the United States within 30 days, said the woman’s lawyer, Bridget Boyle-Saxton.
