Man gets 25 Years for Kidnapping Estranged Wife

(AP) – A northern Minnesota man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for kidnapping his estranged wife and taking her to Mexico in 2011, and robbing a Kansas bank along the way.

Timothy Caskey pleaded guilty last year to abducting his wife off a street in Virginia, Minnesota, just hours after he got out of jail for violating a protective order she had against him.

He held her captive in Mexico for three weeks.

Caskey says he now realizes how wrong he was.

His attorney urged the judge to consider his troubled past, saying he had been molested by his mother in his childhood.
