☛ TS Sequoia Park kidnapper sentenced to eight years
A man arrested in May for kidnapping and robbing a 20-year-old woman at gunpoint from Sequoia Park, pleaded guilty to two of four charges Friday and was sentenced at the Humboldt County Superior Court.
Court documents indicate Juan Jose Estrada-Chavez, 31, was sentenced by Judge John Feeney to eight years in jail and ordered to pay undetermined restitution fines. The documents show, at minimum, Estrada-Chavez will be ordered to pay $2,600.
Estrada-Chavez initially faced four charges of robbery, kidnapping, assault with a firearm and false imprisonment. The charges of false imprisonment and assault with a firearm were dropped as part of the plea.
He was sentenced to serve five years for the robbery charge, and eight years for kidnapping. Estrada-Chavez will serve those terms concurrently
