Stephen Howells – Nicole Vaisey

A New York couple arrested in the kidnapping of two Amish sisters may have planned to abduct more children.

St. Lawrence County Sheriff Kevin Wells said Saturday that “there was the definite potential” of additional victims and that additional charges may be filed against Stephen Howells, 39, and Nicole Vaisey, 25.

The Hermon, N.Y., couple have been arraigned on charges they intended to physically harm or sexually abuse a 7-year-old and 12-year-old after abducting them from a roadside farm stand in northern New York State earlier this week.

Wells says the motive was “to take these girls from their home and victimize these girls.”

UPDATE I: Couple arrested in Amish kidnapping may have planned more abductions.

Wells says the motive was “to take these girls from their home and victimize these girls.”

The sheriff said Howells and Vaisey “were targeting opportunities” and did not necessarily grab the girls because they are Amish.

“There was a lot of thought process that went into this,” Wells said. “They were looking for opportunities to victimize.”

The St. Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office issued a statement late Friday saying the arrests of Howells and Vaisey “no doubt saved young children from future abuse.”

UPDATE II: Kidnap Suspects Sexually Assaulted Amish Girls, Officials Say

The two Amish sisters from northern New York who were kidnapped this week and then found safe a day later were sexually assaulted, the St. Lawrence County’s District Attorneys office told NBC News. Investigators believe suspects Stephen M. Howells II, 39, and Nicole F. Vaisey, 25 had planned the kidnapping using “coercion tactics” and knew ahead of time they wanted to take the girls, St. Lawrence County Sheriff Kevin Wells told reporters Saturday. Howells and Vaisey are being held without bail on first-degree kidnapping charges in the abduction and could face 25 years to life in prison if convicted. Wells added that “there was the definite potential” for additional victims, and the suspects could be hit with more charges.

UPDATE III: More Charges Expected Against child molesting scum bags Stephen Howells & Nicole Vaisey.

Expect more charges to be added to the first degree kidnapping for Stephen Howells and Nicole Vaisey. Look for sexual assault and rape charges as well. Hopefully these two sex offenders will be going away for life.

More charges are expected soon against a northern New York couple accused of kidnapping two young Amish sisters and sexually abusing them, a prosecutor said Sunday.

Computer hard drives and other potential evidence are still being collected Sunday from the home of Stephen Howells Jr. and Nicole Vaisey, said Mary Rain, district attorney for St. Lawrence County.

“I 100 percent expect more charges,” Rain told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. She said the new charges, which she would not detail, could come after she meets with police investigators Monday or at the hearing Thursday. It’s also possible prosecutors would have to wait for results from forensic tests.
