SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV)- A federal jury trial is underway for a man authorities say forced a Briar Cliff University student into a car at gunpoint.
Back in February, court documents say the student was trying to buy marijuana when he was robbed. Documents say 18-year-old Trey Boykin was driving the car, while 23 year-old passenger Gerry Patterson was holding a gun. The student was later let out, unharmed.
Boykin's federal jury trial began Tuesday morning, in Sioux City. He faces multiple charges, including kidnapping and possession of a firearm.
Testifying against Boykin today, was Patterson. In October, Patterson pleaded guilty to several charges, that also include kidnapping and possession of a firearm. A sentencing date has not been set.
