A Louisa County man has been sentenced for kidnapping his estranged wife and sexually assaulting her in a West Virginia motel two years ago. 48-year-old Thomas Faulls (pictured) of Mineral was sentenced to nearly 25 years in prison during a hearing in Charlottesville federal court. The woman was able to get away after getting Faulls drunk at a nearby restaurant and being saved by two good Samaritans. Prosecutors say the marriage had ended after more than 20 years of domestic abuse. On top of the prison term, Faulls will have to register as a sex offender when he’s released, and he’ll be on supervised probation for 15 years.
