A Canton man is going to prison for over a decade after being found guilty of kidnapping.
Robert William Treadway, 51, was originally arrested in April 2018 after being charged with nine felonies related to the allegedly severe abuse of a woman.
According to court documents, Treadway had choked the woman several times and also on one occasion kidnapped the victim, “removing her from one place to another by transporting her in a motor vehicle, without her consent, and for the purpose of terrorizing her and/or facilitating the commission of a felony.”
In addition, Treadway was facing two counts intimidating the victim, who was a state’s witness.
Treadway was ultimately found not guilty of the assault by strangulation and intimidating a state’s witness charges.
However, the first-degree kidnapping conviction — which was made more severe due to the fact he used a firearm in commission of the felony — brought with it a significant prison sentence of 165-210 months (13.75-17.5 years), less 520 days of pretrial confinement.
