Early Life and Education
Jack Doshay, son of Padres minority owner Glenn Doshay, will likely face prison time for trying to kidnap an elementary school girl after school let out. Jack walked onto campus after dismissal ended and confronted 7-year-old Aspen as she went for her after-school program; he attempted to carry her away with him but she fought back; ultimately he let her go after she fought back and they separated themselves.
Prosecutors claim Doshay left his DNA on the tape he used to wrap around her head, and was arrested nine days after the March 23 incident at Skyline Elementary School. Doshay was identified by both young victim and adult witnesses from photo lineup, who could match up his profile with him from memory. Doshay has been sentenced to 10 years of incarceration but will receive credit for time served at Laguna Niguel residential treatment facility for depression.
Jack Henry Doshay, 22, appeared disoriented as he was led out of his car and into Vista Superior Court on charges of kidnapping, false imprisonment and child cruelty – charges which could land him up to 11 years behind bars.
