Men sentenced for kidnapping Nashville family at gunpoint, taking them to multiple ATMs

(Attn. Gen. Office)

The Attorney General's Office said two men were sentenced to 15 years in prison for kidnapping a Nashville family in 2015 and forcing them to withdraw money from multiple ATMs.

According to a spokesperson for the Attorney General's Office, Robert Corder and Oscar Burnett-Patton pleaded guilty to the 2015 aggravated kidnapping.

Metro Nashville Police said the pair robbed a 51-year-old woman, her 72-year-old mother, 26-year-old daughter and 26-year-old boyfriend on Sept. 3.

The men held the family at gunpoint while one ransacked the home on Torusdale Drive and stole items. After that, the Attn. General's Office said the men kidnapped the victims and forced them to go to two different ATMs to take out money.

Police said the men left the family inside their cars as the robbers took off in a getaway vehicle. Police said the young woman memorized the suspect's license tag number, which helped police track them down.

“We appreciate the victim’s courage, determination and patience throughout this process,” ADA DeWitt said. “We hope this guilty plea gives the family the justice they deserved.”

The men pleaded guilty to especially aggravated kidnapping and will serve 15 years in prison.
