On November 1st, the Umatilla County Circuit Court sentenced Sarah Marie Carr to 46 months in the custody of the Department of Corrections for Kidnapping in the Second Degree, and Attempted Assault in the Fourth Degree committed on April 24th, 2016. Ms. Carr went to the victim's home and offered to help him recover money recently stolen from the victim. The victim got into the vehicle Ms. Carr was riding. As the vehicle began to leave the city of Pendleton, the victim became suspicious, and Ms. Carr deployed an electrical stun gun against the victim, which fortunately had no effect. The driver pulled over and allowed the victim to exit, but Ms. Carr exited the vehicle and attempted to deploy the stun gun again before getting back into the vehicle and leaving.

The victim went to a nearby house to call 911, and the Umatilla County Sheriff's Office responded, but turned the case over to Pendleton Police Department because the crime began within city limits. Cpl. Tyler Reddington, Pendleton Police, reviewed video footage, interviewed the victim and other witnesses, and Ms. Carr confessed her actions to Cpl. Reddington. At trial, the driver and another passenger testified against Ms. Carr. Daniel Avila, a co-defendant, also received 46 months in prison.
