VICTORVILLE, Calif. – The man who attempted to kidnap a 2-year-old girl from Victor Valley Global Medical Center has been sentenced to 3 years in prison.
Roger Gregory, a 30-year-old Victorville-area transient, appeared in court on Tuesday, April 16, 2019, where he pleaded guilty to attempted kidnapping. In addition, he admitted to his prior felony convictions. His plea was a result of a plea agreement, which dropped the other charges against him. He received the low term of 18 months, but it was doubled for a total of 3 years to be served with a credit rate of just under 15%. He received 2 days of credit for the 14 days he has served.
The attempted kidnapping occurred on Wednesday, April 3, 2019, just after 11:15 a.m. The mother was standing outside of the hospital with her toddler daughter. Gregory approached them, grabbed the girls hand and attempted to walk away with her. Her mother noticed and grabbed her daughter back and ran into the hospital to tell security about the incident. Gregory fled, and broke into a home but was quickly located by deputies. He struggled briefly but was taken into custody.
He will be serving his time at the Chino Men’s Prison. Gregory, according to court records, has a history of weapon possession, drug possession, resisting arrest, and numerous violations on his Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS).
