Terrance Lynn McGuire Sentenced To 41 Years For 2007 Abduction

KSCB News - April 14, 2010 12:00 am

A 27-year-old Canyon, Texas, man faces 41 years and eight months in prison after he pleaded guilty to kidnapping a 10-year-old girl.

U.S. District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange sentenced Terrance Lynn McGuire, formerly of Liberal, on Wednesday for the January 2007 abduction of the girl in Texhoma in the Oklahoma Panhandle. McGuire pleaded guilty last September to one count of kidnapping and transporting the victim across state lines.

Authorities say the girl was riding her bicycle near her home when McGuire lured her into his car. They say he put a mask over her head, bound her arms, taped her mouth shut and placed her in the car’s trunk.

Authorities say he drove to Dumas, Texas, then to Canyon, and the next day drove to a convenience store in Clovis, N.M., where the girl was released.
