CANTON Sentencing for the man found guilty in the attempted kidnapping of a Massena woman in September has been adjourned to next year.
Patrick R. Lloyd, 25, of New York City, will be sentenced for felony second-degree attempted kidnapping at 9:15 a.m. Jan. 13 in St. Lawrence County Court. He is expected to face eight years in prison as a second offender.
Mr. Lloyd, along with Miranda M. Green, 19, of 37 Howard St., Massena, pleaded guilty Sept. 19 to shoving Catherine A. Berry, 18, to the ground and punching and kicking her in the face several times on Feb. 16. The couple admitted to stopping Ms. Berry on the street, restraining her hands and trying to force her into their vehicle before their actions drew the attention of neighbors in the Sycamore Street area where the incident took place. Ms. Berry suffered bruises and facial swelling as a result of the attack.
Ms. Green was sentenced Oct. 21 to one to four years in state prison. She was sentenced as a youthful offender, meaning she will not have a criminal record after serving her time.
Mr. Lloyds Nov. 6 sentencing date was adjourned because of pending federal drug trafficking charges against him.
