The man who faced charges of scheming to kidnap David Letterman's son and nanny has been sentenced to 10 years behind bars on lesser
After learning of Kelly Frank's alleged kidnapping plot, authorities in
Montana took the painter, who had worked on Letterman's ranch near Choteau,
into custody in March.
In July, Frank struck a plea bargain with prosecutors, agreeing to
lesser charges that included overbilling Letterman for a job and illegally
killing a mule deer on the talk show host's property.
A Teton County judge sentenced Frank to 10 years in prison and stripped him
of hunting and fishing privileges in Montana for 25 years.
Teton County Attorney Joe Coble, says, "The sentence was 10 years to the
Montana state prison for embezzlement, six months to Teton County jail for
obstructing a police officer and five years to the Montana state prison for
illegally possessing wildlife.
"In addition, he was ordered to pay $9,500 in restitution to the state of
Montana and Deep Creek Ranch Llc, which is wholly owned by David Letterman."
Frank was alleged to have revealed to an acquaintance his intention to kidnap
Letterman's then 16-month-old son Harry and the boy's nanny.
