The third defendant to be sentenced in a bizarre 2013 kidnapping case will spend three years in prison.
Blake Long, 21, Toledo, appeared in the courtroom of Judge Robert Pollex Monday.
He pleaded guilty earlier this year to an amended charge of abduction as part of a plea deal.
He also must pay a $10,000 fine.
His sister, Brittany Long, 20, and Nicholas Martinez, 19, both of Toledo, received similar sentences last month.
A fourth defendant, Hui Zhang, 23, Toledo, is set to stand trial in the case next month. She remains charged with one count of kidnapping and one count of aggravated robbery.
According to authorities, on Aug. 18, 2013, a University of Toledo student was contacted by Zhang about a trip to Cedar Point.
The next day, instead of taking the trip, the group reportedly took the man to a vacant home in Bowling Green where he was robbed of his credit card; purchases were subsequently made with the card.

A man who attempted to rob a Bowling Green business earlier this month was indicted on multiple charged by a Wood County grand jury.
Thomas Quick Jr., 37, Gaylord, Michigan, was indicted on charges of aggravated robbery, receiving stolen property, falsification, and failure to comply with an order or signal of a police officer.
The charges stem from a July 8 incident in which Quick allegedly attempted to rob the Tan Pro location on West Wooster Street in Bowling Green.
Quick was hospitalized after crashing his vehicle in a high-speed chase following the incident.
The receiving stolen property charge alleges that Quick stole a Chevy Lumina used in the robbery.
Also indicted was Darlene Kern, 57, Bradner, who was indicted on three counts of trafficking in cocaine, three counts of possession of cocaine, three counts of permitting drug use, one count of possession of marijuana and four counts of illegal use or possession of drug paraphernalia.
The charges stem for incidents reported in Bradner in March, April and May of this year.
