Woman sentenced to prison in dating site scam
A Dothan woman accused of kidnapping and robbery in connection with what police call a dating site scam has pleaded guilty.
Kellie Marie Long was sentenced to a 20 year split sentence with three years to be served in prison followed by probation.
Long was one of three people arrested in October for luring the victim through an online dating website. When the man showed up at a hotel he was held at gunpoint.
Police say the victim was forced to drive to an ATM and withdraw money from his account. He was later released unharmed.
Long had been scheduled for trial Monday. Court records show she pleaded guilty last week before Houston County Circuit Judge Michael Conaway.
Co-defendants Larry McKisseth and Justice Burks are awaiting trial.
