Idaho Carjacker Gets Sentence

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A judge has sentenced an Idaho man accused of driving a kidnapped woman’s car to North Dakota and pulling a gun on a trucker to 10 years in prison. Mitchell Walck pleaded guilty in July to terrorizing, unlawful entry to a motor vehicle, possession of stolen property and felon in possession of a firearm.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that Walck did not comment during Tuesday’s sentencing in Bismarck. Authorities say the 57-year-old Walck kidnapped a woman from her home in Rathdrum, Idaho, in December, released her unharmed the next day in Glendive, Mont., then drove to Bismarck and threatened a trucker whose semitrailer sleeper cab he had entered.

Police say the abduction came after Walck shot at an Idaho state trooper following a failed traffic stop and chase.
