Kidnapper Of Ex-Girlfriend's Son Pleads Guilty

A man arrested after allegedly kidnapping his ex-girlfriend's son pleaded guilty today to four charges.

Eric Mauldin will be sentenced next month on aggravated kidnapping, endangering a child, aggravated assault, and evading arrest.

An Amber Alert was issued the morning of July 9, 2004 for a missing 8-year-old. Smith County Sheriff's investigators say Mauldin jumped through the window of his ex-girlfriend's home and kidnapped her son, Darian. The search for Darian led to a car chase that ended at the Harris Nursery parking lot. That's where sheriff's deputies arrested Mauldin.

They say Darian was not hurt.
