An Evansville man has been sentenced to several decades in prison after being found guilty of Kidnapping and Aggravated Battery.
32-year-old Quinton Lee Jennings of Evansville, Indiana, was sentenced to 16 years in the department of corrections on felony charges of Kidnapping and Aggravated Battery - however, due to being a habitual offender, Jennings' sentence was enhanced by an additional 20 years.
That totals a sentence of 36 years in the Indiana Department of Corrections.
Jennings' sentencing comes after he was found guilty of those Kidnapping and Aggravated Battery charges back in July of 2021.
The prosecutor's office says Jennings abducted a woman and her child from her residence in Newburgh, Indiana, and traveled towards Posey County.
While in Posey County, Jennings assaulted the woman with a crowbar in front of her child, according to the prosecutor's office.
Jennings then traveled into Illinois with the woman after she was seriously injured. After some period of time, Jennings released the victim and her daughter at a bar in Franklin County, Illinois.
Authorities in Illinois were able to capture Jennings, leading to the charges filed against him, the guilty verdict reached in July, and finally, his sentencing on Wednesday.
