GENEVA COUNTY, Ala (WDHN)—A man has pled guilty to two federal charges and admitted he kidnapped a Geneva County teen and was involved in a car chase over two states.
Iziquel Vang has pled guilty to kidnapping and carjacking. The third charge, brandishing a firearm in relation to a crime of violence, was dropped.
In the plea agreement, Vang admits to the forced kidnapping of a 16-year-old girl who he had been in contact with online.
According to Sheriff Tony Helms, Vang abducted her at gunpoint in front of her parents in their Eastern Geneva County home. He then stole her car and forced her to drive him to Georgia.
An amber alert was issued for the girl and a chase ensued after authorities found them in Georgia.
The chase continued into Florida and ended in Greenville, outside of Tallahasse, after the car crashed and Vang attempted to flee on foot. He was caught after a manhunt.
Helms says before this incident, Vang had a history of becoming obsessed with women he spoke with online.
The plea agreement states the government will not pursue any other charges against Vang, and he cannot challenge or attack the conviction or sentencing.
A sentencing date for Vang has not been set, but he could face life.
