BETHESDA, Md. (AP) — A Jessup man has pleaded guilty to two counts of kidnapping stemming from a case in which a woman was carjacked with her 20-month-old son inside the vehicle.

The woman ended up jumping out of the moving car on the Capital Beltway in Bethesda with her son in her arms. Neither was seriously injured.

Terron White, 23, pleaded guilty Friday in Montgomery County Circuit Court. Prosecutors say they will seek a 40-year prison term. Sentencing was scheduled for Nov. 21.

Montgomery County State’s Attorney John McCarthy says the kidnapping was a “horrifying experience for the victim,” Elyssa Samuels. The kidnapping occurred in July 2011 in Baltimore, and prosecutors say White drove to Bethesda before Samuels escaped and he was arrested.

White’s attorney did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
