Man Accused in 1987 Canada Abduction Gets Prison Time on US Charges

A Canadian man accused of abducting his toddler son in Toronto in 1987 and living on the lam for three decades has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for illegally obtaining U.S. government benefits. 

Allan Mann Jr. was sentenced Thursday in federal court in New Haven, Connecticut. He pleaded guilty to making a false statement in August.

Officials say Mann will be extradited to Toronto after serving his sentence to face an abduction charge there.

Authorities say Mann kidnapped his son 32 years ago during a court-ordered visitation. Law enforcement officials found him in Vernon, Connecticut, last year.

His son, now in his 30s, has been reunited with his mother since his father's arrest. 

Prosecutors say Mann illegally obtained more than $180,000 in housing and Medicaid benefits while in the U.S.
