Texas man receives 41-year sentence in kidnapping
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A 27-year-old Canyon, Texas, man faces 41
years and eight months in prison after he pleaded guilty to
kidnapping a 10-year-old girl.
U.S. District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange sentenced Terrance Lynn
McGuire on Wednesday for the January 2007 abduction of the girl in
Texhoma in the Oklahoma Panhandle. McGuire pleaded guilty last
September to one count of kidnapping and transporting the victim
across state lines.
Authorities say the girl was riding her bicycle near her home
when McGuire lured her into his car. They say he put a mask over
her head, bound her arms, taped her mouth shut and placed her in
the car's trunk.
Authorities say he drove to Dumas, Texas, then to Canyon, and
the next day drove to a convenience store in Clovis, N.M., where
the girl was released.
