Dara Llorens sentenced to 6 years for kidnapping daughter by Andy Jechow, KXAN
This was a 12-year kidnapping and Dara Llorens and her punishment was far less than the 12 years she kidnapped her daughter. Although Llorens did plead guilty and spared the public the expense of a jury trial although she did raise the “necessity defense” at her sentencing hearing. We would like to see new legislation to make the penalties harsher for long-term family abductions. The punishment should fit the crime and the horrible nature of these crime and the impact on these children.
