An Oroville man is sentenced for attempted kidnapping. 32-year-old Jesse Horton was sentenced Wednesday to nine years in state prison from his September 2016 conviction of attempted kidnapping and indecent exposure.
In May of 2016 a 14-year-old girl reported that a man in a blue Mazda 3 sedan pulled along side of her and exposed himself to her on Robinson Street near 1st Avenue in Oroville. According to a Butte County D.A.'s Office press release, Horton then got out of the car near a bus stop and tried to grab her, but she was able to run away. Investigators were able to tie Horton to the incident and he was arrested.
