Anchorage man gets 25 years for kidnapping

Posted: Monday, February 09, 2009

ANCHORAGE - An Anchorage man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for his role in the kidnapping and assault of two women.

Doug McClain was convicted of kidnapping, assault and misconduct involving a weapon.

Prosecutors said McClain and two others tortured two women in a trailer in the Muldoon neighborhood in April 2007. Prosecutors said the two victims had stolen a gun, a small amount of money and crack cocaine from the defendants.

One victim, authorities said, was tortured and raped, and the other was also beaten before escaping and alerting police.

A jury convicted two co-defendants in June. Annie Shinault was sentenced to 51 years in prison; Brenda Cleveland will be sentenced next month.
