Limestone County man sentenced in 2015 kidnapping, attempted murder crime spree
Casey White held his girlfriend, 2 others hostage
LIMESTONE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - A Limestone County man has been sentenced in a crime spree from 2015.
Casey White was sentenced nine charges. He was sentenced on one count for attempted murder, two counts for kidnapping, one count for robber, one count for burglary, one count of cruelty to animals , one count for attempting to elude authorities, and one count breaking and entering a vehicle.
White will serve 75 years in state prison. He has 42 days to appeal.
White was convicted after breaking into his girlfriend’s home in 2015, killing her dog, and holding her and two other people, hostage. They eventually escaped while he fired a gun at them.
After that, he stole a car, tried to hijack a trucker at gun point, and shot another woman who’s car he also tried to steal.
Limestone County District Attorney Brian Jones said the victims who saw this trial through were brave.
“Mr. White is a 6 foot 8 man who charged into these people’s homes with guns blazing. Each one of these victims came to court and have had their day in justice,” said Jones. “Every single person who’s in Limestone County should sleep better tonight, that any parent who has a child who’s of dating age, this is what you’re afraid of when your child goes on a date, that they’ll meet somebody like Casey White who will stalk their child and try to kill them.”
A sentence for White hasn’t been set, but Jones did he say he would seek the maximum penalty. He could receive a life sentence.
