Federal authorities in cooperation with local law enforcement in Atlanta recently took a sixth suspect into custody in connection with the kidnapping of a prosecutor's father in early April. The kidnappers are accused of kidnapping F.J. in retaliation against a North Carolina assistant district attorney, C.J., who was assigned the prosecution of a case involving an alleged gang member and drug dealer. The case failed to go to court and the defendant, J.T., was released. He is now being sought by the FBI as the last suspect still at large in the kidnapping incident. The prosecutor's father, F.J., was abducted from his home in North Carolina on April 5th. According to investigators, F.J. was put into the back of a rental car and driven to Atlanta, Georgia where he was held in an area apartment. He was located by authorities and safely recovered. Five of the seven individuals suspected of being involved in the kidnapping were arrested at the time and a sixth, Q.T., was arrested most recently. The seventh and final suspect, J.T., remains at large and is considered armed and dangerous. The FBI has offered a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the 21-year-old man. Q.T. and the other suspects are facing federal kidnapping charges. Make sure you have a skilled criminal defense lawyer fighting for you if you have been charged with a serious violent crime such as kidnapping.
