WORCESTER — A 29-year-old Worcester man was sentenced to 3-4 years in prison after being found guilty in Worcester Superior Court of stealing a running SUV with a 8-year-old child in the back seat, according to Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr.
Richard McBride of 45 Grand St. stole the SUV about 4:40 p.m., July 20, 2015, in front of Cibao Market at 805 Main St.. The child’s father began chasing after the vehicle on foot, and McBride was quickly stopped by Worcester Police.
Judge Richard Tucker found the defendant guilty today of kidnapping a child and larceny of a motor vehicle and sentenced him to 3-4 years in state prison with five years probation to follow. It was the same sentence recommended by McBride’s attorney. McBride was ordered to remain drug free while on probation.
Assistant District Attorney Lina Pashou had recommended a prison sentence of 10-12 years.
