Confessed kidnapper jailed for five years
A man who admitted snatching a four-year-old girl while riding her scooter has been sentenced to prison.
Huntly man Taukiri Makaira Cash was sentenced to five years and 10 months with a minimum non-parole period of three years in the Hamilton High Court on Tuesday, says Stuff.
He was sentenced after pleading guilty to six charged including kidnapping, indecent communication with a young person under 16, attempted sexual conduct with a child under 12, and three counts of doing an indecent act.
The offending was against multiple victims who ranged in age from 4 to 11 years old.
