    A western Maryland man has been sentenced to 11 years in prison for kidnapping his ex-girlfriend last year.

    Jeremy Shane Keadle, of Williamsport, was sentenced Monday in Washington County Circuit Court.

    Prosecutors say Keadle grabbed the woman last April outside a nightclub where she worked, forced her into a car and drove off. A deputy used a stun gun to subdue Keadle after he refused to get out of the van.

    Keadle told the judge in the case that he "made some real poor decisions," reported the Herald-Mail of Hagerstown.

    In December, Keadle entered an Alford plea in the case, meaning he didn't admit guilt but acknowledged that prosecutors likely had enough evidence for a conviction.
