An Endicott man, who admitted he lured a Wisconsin woman to his home through postings on LinkedIn and held her hostage, sexually abusing her, will spend two to seven years in prison.

51 year old Larry Servedio was arrested after the woman signaled a police officer and indicated she was being held against her will.

Servedio was also accused of abusing another woman.

Broome County Judge Joseph Cawley admitted he only reluctantly accepted Servedio’s guilty plea under the weight of the law.

Prosecutors say the Endicott man told the Wisconsin woman he worked for the FBI and invited her to visit him in Broome County.

Her family reported her missing when she had called a daughter and asked for money, said she had gotten married in New York and was not coming home.

Servedio pleaded guilty to two felony counts of criminal impersonation and was handed sentences for each count to be served consecutively.
