SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — A Sioux Falls man has pleaded guilty in federal court to kidnapping.

Sixty-one-year-old Jon Bryant Sr. was accused of forcefully taking a vehicle from a woman and then forcing the victim into the trunk, and seriously injuring her.

U.S. Attorney Randolph Seiler says Bryant’s motive in the October incident was revenge, and that Bryant took the victim across state lines before being caught.

Bryant faces up to life in prison when he’s sentenced Oct. 23.
