CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - A Camden man convicted of a 2012 kidnapping and robbery was sentenced to serve 45 years in prison due to his status as a repeat offender.

The Courier-Post reports (http://on.cpsj.com/1Lau9GI ) 39-year-old Michael Winters was convicted in June of kidnapping, robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery charges. He was sentenced Thursday.

Prosecutors say Winters was eligible for the extended-term sentence because of his past crimes. Winters is required to serve just over 38 years in prison before he’s eligible for parole.

Prosecutors say Winters and co-defendant Matilda Marshall abducted a Camden woman waiting at a bus stop on Nov. 15, 2012. The victim fled and called police after the duo stopped to use her Families First card at a gas station ATM machine.

Marshall was sentenced to four years in prison.
