Suffolk County, Ny - October 27, 2016 - A Suffolk County jury today convicted a former Suffolk man, Glenn Terry of Attempted Kidnapping and five counts of Criminal Possession of a Weapon. 

Terry, 48, who was upset at the result of a settlement amount in a personal injury action drove to Long Island from Florida with the intent to kidnap his attorney, Frank Tinari.  After checking into a local motel the armed defendant arrived at the victim’s law office and waited for Mr. Tinari in the parking lot. 
 
“Fortunately unbeknownst to the defendant Mr. Tinari had already arrived at work,” said DA Spota, “Luckily for Mr. Tinari the defendant left the parking lot and during a routine traffic stop a police officer noticed a Taser cartridge in Terry’s vehicle and the defendant essentially volunteered his kidnap plan to the officers.”
 
After 10 hours of deliberation, the jury convicted the defendant of Attempted Kidnapping in the Second degree a class C violent felony, two counts of Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Second degree, class C armed violent felonies and three additional Criminal Possession of a Weapon charges.  The maximum sentence Terry faces is 34 and 2/3 years incarceration.
 
Sentencing is scheduled for December 14, 2016.
