Findlay man sentenced for abduction


A Findlay man who pleaded guilty to abduction is going to prison.

Eddie Curry, 27, was transported from jail Monday to the courtroom of Wood County Common Pleas Judge Molly Mack.

He was indicted in March for kidnapping and failure to register, both first-degree felonies; abduction, a third-degree felony; disrupting public service, a fourth-degree felony; domestic violence and violating a protection order, both first-degree misdemeanors.

In May, he pleaded guilty to the amended court of failure to register, a second-degree felony; abduction, domestic violence and violating a protection order.

On March 6 on Carrie Lane in Fostoria, he struck a woman with a closed fist, causing injuries to her face, head, arms, legs and back. He then forced her to stay in a dark room with him while he searched through her phone, beating her multiple times and yelling at her during an approximate three-hour period.

According to court documents, she wanted to call for help, but Curry had her phone, and she was in fear for her life, so she continued to lay curled up on the floor.

“I take full accountability of my actions,” Curry said.

He said he fell short trying to overcome intergenerational behavioral patterns and he didn’t stop and consider how his actions would affect his children.

“I’m learning and growing each and every day …” he said.

Mack said the victim suffered serious harm and it was the relationship she had with Curry that facilitated these offenses.

Curry also was on probation in Hancock County when he committed these offenses, she said.

Mack imposes a minimum four years and maximum six years in prison for the failure to register charge and 24 months for abduction, to be served concurrently.

She imposed 180 days for each misdemeanor charge, to be served concurrently with the felony sentences.
