Seneca Falls kidnappers take deal

Two of the three people accused of kidnapping another person for ransom money accepted plea deals Monday in Seneca County Court.

Jesse James Dillsworth, 34, pleaded guilty to first-degree attempted kidnapping (class B felony). He is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 30 by Judge Dennis Bender to seven years in prison followed by five years of parole.

Brian Gonyou Sr., 39, pleaded guilty to second-degree attempted kidnapping (class C felony). He is scheduled to be sentenced the same day to 3½ years in prison and five years of parole.

Dillsworth, Gonyou and Gonyou’s girlfriend, Lisa Freer, were arrested in May by Seneca Falls police after a search warrant was executed at their home on Miller Street. That followed a week-long investigation into the kidnapping and extortion plot.
