Posted: Updated:

BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - An Arlington man who pleaded guilty to kidnapping his daughter and assaulting his estranged partner has been sentenced to 18 months to 10 years in prison.

The Rutland Herald reports that 24-year-old Thomas R. Vollinger of Arlington pleaded guilty Wednesday to a charge of kidnapping someone under 16 and to a misdemeanor domestic assault charge.

He had originally faced seven felony charges.

Vollinger was arrested Oct. 30 after a woman who had recently broken off a relationship with him told police that Vollinger came to her home to visit the child the two had had together.

She told police Vollinger assaulted her and left with the baby.
