CINCINNATI (AP) — A judge has sentenced a Cincinnati man to more than 16 years in federal prison for car-jacking a man at gunpoint last year.
The crime occurred after a man was stopped by a Cincinnati police officer for driving with improper plates in April. The officer told the motorist to pull over and call for a ride.
Police say that's when 34-year-old Bennie Overton put a gun to the man's head and forced him to move over into the passenger's seat. The man begged for his life before jumping out of the car, as Overton sped away.
Police found Overton five days later passed out in the victim's car with the gun.
The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/VEMOAK ) reports Overton received a 199-month prison term for car-jacking and other charges.
