Trenton Man Sentenced in Ex-Girlfriend’s Alleged Abduction

A man accused of abducting his 15-year-old former girlfriend off a Trenton street and holding her captive for four days while he beat and sexually assaulted her has pleaded guilty to threatening the teen.

Marquis Smith (Trenton Police Department)

Twenty-two-year-old Marquis Smith of Trenton was sentenced Tuesday to five years in prison. But he could be freed within the year because he received credit for the 769 days he’s served since being arrested in May 2011.

The plea came after Mercer County prosecutors dropped the kidnapping and sexual assault charges. When Smith was charged, his attorney had claimed the girl made up the allegations to avoid punishment for not coming home and to get back at Smith for breaking up with her.

The teen said Smith held her prisoner in an attic without food.
