LUDINGTON, Mich. (AP) -- A West Michigan man who authorities say took his two young children to Florida last year without their mother's permission has been sentenced to prison.

The Ludington Daily News reports ( ) Mark McCallum was sentenced Tuesday to 28 months to 15 years in prison.

A Mason County Circuit Court jury earlier convicted him of two charges of parental kidnapping, one for each of his two children who he took to Florida while going through a divorce.

McCallum failed to drop off the then-4- and 2-year-old children with their mother in February 2012. They later were found safe in Key West, Fla.

McCallum defended himself during the trial.
