LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — A Russellville woman has been sentenced to nearly 22 years in prison for her role in two kidnappings connected to a white supremacist group.

Court records show 40-year-old Amanda Rapp was sentenced Friday to 262 months in prison.

Rapp pleaded guilty in October to two counts of kidnapping two people who were suspected by the New Aryan Empire of cooperating with law enforcement.

Rapp is one of dozens of NAE members who were indicted in 2017 and 2019.

An attorney for Rapp did not immediately return a phone call for comment.

Federal prosecutors say 49 defendants in the case have now pleaded guilty.
