GRANDVILLE, Mich. (WOOD) - The ringleader in the abduction of a Grandville woman could spend up to 90 years in prison for the crime.
Regan Reynolds was sentenced Thursday. He pleaded guilty in December to kidnapping, conspiracy, home invasion and being an habitual offender.
Regan received a sentence of 20 to 60 years in prison for the kidnapping and conspiracy charges. He was also sentenced to 10 to 30 years behind bars for the home invasion charge.
The charges will be served consecutively.
Investigators say two other suspects -- Bryan Blakely and Quinton Goree -- in August 2011 broke into the Grandville home of Reynolds' former in-laws, David and Kathleen Byker.
Blakely and Goree then kidnapped Kathleen in an attempt to extort $200,000 from the couple. They drove her to a cornfield, tied her to a telephone pole and left her there, police said. Kathleen freed herself and got help from a passing truck driver.
The suspects never got any money, court records show.
Blakely and Goree eventually turned themselves in to police. Officers later arrested Reynolds.
Blakely and Goree were sentenced in December 2011 to 15 to 50 years for kidnapping and 5 to 20 years for the home invasion.
