Mould sentenced to 10 years for attempted kidnapping at Stewart's
BALLSTON SPA, N.Y. -- A Saratoga County man who was found guilty of attempting to kidnap a woman at a Stewart's in Greenfield last September was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Thomas Mould, 30, of Porter Corners was convicted of second-degree attempted kidnapping back in June.
According to the Saratoga County District Attorney's Office, the 20-year-old victim had just finished pumping gas at the Stewart's on Route 9N on Sept. 22 when Mould approached her and asked for the time. When she checked, Mould lunged at her, began choking her, and pushed her into the passenger's seat. The DA said Mould continued to restrain her, threatened to kill her, and demanded she give him a ride.
The victim fought back and was able to ward off the attack by telling Mould he was being recorded by the surveillance cameras at Stewart's.
In addition to prison time, Mould received five years post release supervision and a stay away order was also issued for a 15-year period.
