Troy man sentenced for separate kidnapping, assault

A Troy man will spend up to eight years in prison for kidnapping and assault.

Tyrell Ravenell was sentenced Friday in Rensselaer County Court.

He abducted an 11-year-old in the first case, prosecutors said. He then beat another inmate in the Rensselaer County Jail, said the district attorney.

Ravenell must also register as a sex offender.
