An Albany man was sentenced to nearly six years in prison last week for kidnapping a woman in September.
Andrew Jacob McKay, 47, pleaded no contest in Linn County Circuit Court on Nov. 9 to a charge of second-degree kidnapping (domestic violence).
The crime occurred on Sept. 28, and the Albany Police Department investigated the case.
Per terms of the negotiated settlement, a charge of felony fourth-degree assault was dismissed at sentencing.
Second-degree kidnapping is a Measure 11 crime, and McKay will serve every day of his 70-month sentence.
The victim in the case is the same woman McKay assaulted in March. In April, McKay pleaded guilty in Linn County Circuit Court to a charge of fourth-degree assault and was sentenced to 30 days in jail and three years' probation. A charge of harassment was dismissed as part of that negotiated settlement.
In 2007, McKay was convicted of second-degree assault after a trial in Linn County Circuit Court and was sentenced to nearly six years in prison.
McKay’s defense attorney, Tyler Reid, did not return a phone call seeking comment.
Coleen Cerda handled the prosecution for the Linn County District Attorney’s Office.
Judge Brendan James presided over the case.
