Dad accused of kidnapping son to be sentenced

Cleveland, OH (WEWS) – A man who pleaded guilty to kidnapping his five-year-old son in 2002 faces sentencing Wednesday.

Bobby Hernandez admitted to taking his son Julien from Alabama and establishing new identities for the two of them in Ohio.

The ruse began to unravel last year, when Julien was applying to college and his name and social security number didn’t match.

A judge will sentence Hernandez Wednesday.

Depending on that sentence, Alabama authorities could attempt to extradite Hernandez to face charges in that state.
