LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The man who kidnapped two sisters at knife point has been sentenced to prison.
A judge ordered John Gaskins to serve 10 years behind bars for kidnapping and more time for assault and theft.
He will also have to register as a sex offender for life.
Last March, Gaskins kidnapped a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old girl from their Hardin County driveway and took them to a cabin in Meade County.
One was an ex-girlfriend.
When Gaskins left with the 16-year-old, the 17-year-old was able to break free and called 911.
Troopers tracked his cell phone to northern Kentucky.
A witness saw Gaskins choking the 16-year-old after a car crash.
Both girls suffered minor injuries.
