A 32-year-old man convicted of kidnapping two Coos Bay girls was sentenced Monday in Coquille to a mandatory 13 years in prison. With the added sentence for unrelated burglary convictions Robert Perez faces a total of more than 17 years in prison.
The World reports Perez was convicted last month of kidnapping, coercion and furnishing liquor to a minor. Police say he drove two girls - 12 and 13 - around town in July, giving them alcohol and marijuana and stopping at a park in North Bend where they were rescued.
One of the girls was a neighbor and her mother had given permission for the girls to go on an errand with Perez, but he didn't bring them back.
