ALBANY, Ore. (AP) - An Albany man whose wife said he held her captive for a week of beatings and rapes has been sentenced for only one count of witness tampering after her story began to unravel.

The Albany Democrat-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1YIkkTQ ) that 38-year-old Craig Lazon has been in Linn County Jail for nine months since his wife made accusations that lead to charges including kidnapping, rape, sodomy, strangulation and assault.

At a hearing on Tuesday, his wife pleaded with a judge to spare Lazon jail time, contending that she has severe post-traumatic stress disorder which lead to the accusations.

Lazon’s lone charge stems from working in collusion with another jail inmate to call his wife and suggest she not show up for his trial. He has been sentenced to 36 months in prison.
