A Huntington Station man has been sentenced to 13 years in prison in the attempted kidnapping of his girlfriend.
Suffolk County District Attorney Raymond A. Tierney said Friday that on March 6, Kenyonne Fleurinay, 23, abducted his 20-year-old girlfriend from America’s Best Value Inn
in Smithtown following an argument, and drove her against her will into Brooklyn.
Surveillance video from a gas station in Melville captured the victim twice attempt to flee from Fleurinay’s car and Fleurinay twice violently throw the victim back into the vehicle, Tierney said.
After pleading guilty in September to attempted kidnapping in the second degree, he then
failed to voluntarily return to court for sentence, Tierney said.
While driving from Suffolk to Kings County, Fleurinay repeatedly whipped the victim about her body with a phone charger.
During the abduction, the victim’s mother contacted the defendant and pleaded with him to return her daughter until he ultimately drove her back to Suffolk County, where he was apprehended by the Suffolk County Police Department.
Fleurinay, pleaded guilty on September 9, 2022, to Attempted Kidnapping in the Second Degree, a Class C violent felony, before Supreme Court Justice John B. Collins. Fleurinay was scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 23, but failed to return to court for sentence and an arrest warrant was issued. On Oct.30, he was arrested by the Nassau County Police Department for Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Third Degree, a Class B felony, and was returned to Suffolk County.
