Man sentenced for kidnapping MLB pitcher's brother
Feb. 28, 2018
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The second of two men involved in the kidnapping and shooting of the older brother of former Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Josh Ravin has been sentenced to 22 years in prison.
Joel Keith Ravin was abducted, forced into a car and driven to various locations in October 2015. He was eventually driven back to his home, where he was shot multiple times, but survived.
Police arrested Randall Elmer Stinson two weeks later. His accomplice, James Edward Baggett, turned himself in to authorities the following month.
City News Service reports Stinson was sentenced Wednesday after pleading no contest to attempted murder. Baggett, who pleaded no contest to kidnapping, was sentenced Feb. 7 to 13 years in prison.
The victim's brother, Josh Ravin, is now a starting pitcher for the Atlanta Braves.
