ODESSA, Texas — An Odessa man could be serving up to 80 years in jail after he was found guilty for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and aggravated kidnapping.
Nathan Sandoval, 25, was arrested by Ector County authorities in April 2021.
According to original information from Odessa Police Department, Sandoval kidnapped his ex-girlfriend at gunpoint and forced her into a vehicle.
The kidnapping incident happened in early March, meaning Sandoval was on the run for about a month.
According to the Ector County District Attorney's Office, Sandoval's punishment range was 25 years to life in prison based on his previous criminal history.
The jury sentenced Sandoval to 40 years in prison for each of the two counts, which will run at the same time.
Sandoval will be eligible for parole after serving 20 years in jail.
