LONGMONT, Colo. — Monty Turner, who pleaded guilty in October for his role in the 2013 kidnapping of his then-3-year-old son, was sentenced to 36 years in prison Friday by a Boulder District Court judge.
Turner, 52, agreed to plead guilty to second-degree kidnapping, felony menacing, use of a stun gun and violation of custody.
In May 2013, Turner was hiding in the garage of his estranged wife’s home, forced his way inside, then used a stun gun and pepper-spray on Brandy Turner before taking the couple’s 3-year-old son Luke.
Police found Monty Turner in Brandon, Manitoba, the next day, where he was arrested. Luke was reunited with his mother the next day.
A month later, Turner was extradited to Longmont.
In April, Ronald Turner was convicted by a Boulder County jury of burglary, violating a custody order, assault, kidnapping, child abuse and accessory to a crime.
In June he was sentenced to 27 years in prison.
