A man convicted of kidnapping a woman and her 20-month-old son and driving them from Baltimore to Bethesda was sentenced Friday to 30 years in prison, News4's Pat Collins reported.

Prosecutors sought a 40-year prison term for 24-year-old Terron White, who was sentenced in Montgomery County Circuit Court.

Authorities say White carjacked Elyssa Samuels with her son inside the vehicle in July 2011 and drove them from Baltimore to the Capital Beltway. Samuels jumped out of the moving car with her son in her arms. Neither was seriously injured.

White pleaded guilty last August to two counts of kidnapping.

The kidnapping was a “horrifying experience for the victim,” Elyssa Samuels, Montgomery County State's Attorney John McCarthy said.

White will be eligible for parole in 15 years.
