RAPID CITY, South Dakota — A Rapid City man accused in an alleged kidnapping incident last November has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

The Rapid City Journal ( ) reports Joshua Peacock was sentenced Tuesday. He had pleaded guilty but mentally ill to attempted first-degree kidnapping, second-degree kidnapping and second-degree burglary in July.

Peacock was the subject of a citywide search after he allegedly kidnapped a woman when she found him burglarizing her home. Authorities say he forced the woman to drive him to a Wal-Mart to get cash but fled when she went into the store.

The newspaper reports Peacock will have to serve 60 percent of his sentence before he is eligible for parole.
