On April 5, an amber alert for the 12-year-old was issued, and on the same day, she was found with Stiver, who was then arrested for her abduction.

At the time of the abduction, Stiver was on probation for arson-related charges related to an incident in Oct. 2021. While on probation, he was under the supervision of the probation department’s mental health/developmental disabilities unit, court records state.

In September, Stiver plead guilty to multiple charges including three counts of rape, pandering obscenity involving a minor, kidnapping, interference of custody, domestic violence, endangering children and grand theft.

Tuesday, Stiver was sentenced by Judge Deena Calabrese to 35-to-40 years in prison.
