Vancouver, BC, Canada / (CKNW AM) AM980

A fugitive from New Zealand who kidnapped a sex trade worker in Vancouver last year has been sentenced to 22 months in jail.

40-year-old Michael Farley has been in custody since March of last year.

His 42-year old victim told police she was pepper-sprayed, beaten and tied up when she refused to go to Farley’s home after he picked her up in the Downtown Eastside and he paid her for sex.

Seven other charges, including aggravated sexual assault, have been dropped.
