Businessman gets maximum sentence for kidnapping Rochester woman at Dover hotel
DOVER - A Massachusetts businessman got the maximum sentence for kidnapping a Rochester woman at a Dover hotel in September 2013.
Thomas Minichiello was sentenced to 3½ to 7 years in jail.
Prosecutors say he lured the woman to a Dover hotel in 2013 under the pretense of applying for a job, but held her for more than four hours.
The defense argued the encounter was consensual.
The victim did not claim to be raped but said she was sexually assaulted.
