 JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – A Jonesboro man was sentenced to four years in prison on battery and kidnapping charges in Craighead County Circuit Court.

According to documents filed with the circuit court’s office, Timothy Brinkley, 32, of Jonesboro, plead guilty Wednesday before Circuit Judge Cindy Thyer. Brinkley was given a 60 month suspended imposition of sentence and ordered to pay $250 and not to have contact with his estranged wife.

According to Jonesboro police, Brinkley wanted to see his children in September, 2013. When his wife allowed him to her home, Brinkley forced her into a van.

Police said she escaped near a gas station, but Brinkley caught her a second time.

Thyer ordered Brinkley to undergo anger management and domestic batterers classes while he is in prison. Brinkley was given credit for 299 days served in jail.
