Bay State man sentenced for armed home invasion, kidnapping
Judge Marguerite Wageling chided Luis Carvalho for storming the house on April 15, 2012, and threatening 19-year-old Samantha Gervais at gunpoint.
“You engaged in a horrific crime and put a young lady in fear for her life,” Wageling said. “While you may not have left her with physical injuries, you left her with a lifelong injury, one that will probably never heal.”
Carvalho fled the home in an SUV and crashed the vehicle in a wooded area nearby before he was arrested during a widespread search that included a police K-9 and a state police helicopter.
“No one is really more frustrated than Luis and his family over the poor decision he made,” Kiers said.
“She testified on the stand that she thought she was going to die,” Conway said, recalling the trial. “She has had nightmares since this happened and she’s afraid to be alone at night.”
“Despite having those tools, he chose to commit this crime,” Conway said.
