A Wisconsin man was sentenced Friday to life in prison for kidnapping 13-year-old Jayme Closs and killing her parents after the girl told the judge she that wanted him "locked up forever" for trying to steal her. Jayme escaped in January, after being held for 88 days at Patterson's cabin near the small and isolated town of Gordon, some 60 miles (97 kilometers) from her home.
A judge sentenced Patterson to two consecutive terms of life in prison on the counts of intentional homicide, and the maximum of 40 years on kidnapping (25 years in prison, 15 years supervised release), also consecutive.
Jayme told police that the night of her abduction, the family dog's barking awoke her, and she went to wake up her parents as a vehicle came up the driveway.

"I would do absolutely anything, I would die, I would do absolutely anything to bring them back", Patterson said, causing his father to break down in tears.

Defense attorneys said Patterson told them on January 13 he was prepared to go to prison for the rest of his life for "the disgusting things he had done", and argued he had showed some remorse following his arrest. He visited the Closs home twice before pulling into the driveway in the early hours of October 15.

One of Jayme's aunts, Suzi Allard, said, "I don't want another family to go through the nightmare my family has had to endure", in asking the judge to sentence Patterson to the maximum penalty on all counts. He took off and applied for a warehouse job at a liquor distributor in the city of Superior. Her aunt, Jen Smith, accepted the award on her niece's behalf. Patterson was arrested in the area a short time later. "The reason I did this is complicated". She said Jayme's bravery and spirit were inspiring.
