A Buffalo man is now facing 19 years in prison after a guilty verdict was delivered in his stalking trial.

40-year-old Michael Reibel was convicted on Tuesday of stalking his former girlfriend and violating an order of protection.  The jury also found Reibel guilty of breaking into the woman's home, abducting her, and holding her against her will for several hours.  Prosecutors say this happened on July 21, 2015. 

The Buffalo man is currently being held without bail as he awaits his sentencing, which is scheduled for May 12.
