A man was found not guilty of kidnapping after stealing a car that had a child inside in 2019.

Michael Crittenden, now 31, was tried on March 25 for first-degree kidnapping and felony larceny after stealing a van that was parked outside of the emergency department entrance at Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center on June 15, 2019.

A 1-year-old child was inside of the van at the time, which was left running and unattended.

The baby was found half an hour later, still in his car seat, on the sidewalk of an apartment complex.

Crittenden was arrested later that day in Conway, S.C. on unrelated charges.

He was found guilty of felony larceny, but not guilty of kidnapping.

Crittendon was sentenced to 8-19 months in prison.

I saw on the news that the sucker punch guy, who has been punching women in the face, has been released from NYC police custody with no bail.

Dulce Pichardo said she suffered a broken jaw and lost teeth that led to permanent nerve damage when a man sucker-punched her in Brooklyn last week.

Looks like yet another failure of the court system.

Misdemeanor Larceny in 2013... probation and suspended sentence

Felony B&E and credit card theft, along with misdemeanor larceny in 2015... probation and suspended sentence.

Felony breaking into vehicles, financial card fraud, credit card theft, possession of stolen goods in 2016.. probation and suspended sentence

Then he violated his parole in 2017, and it looks like he FINALLY went to jail! For 1 year, but then had another 7 months tacked on for some reason

Felony possession of a gun and common law robbery in 2018... probation and suspended sentence

I guess now that he's murdered someone... I don't know, maybe probation and suspended sentence?
