DOVER Convicted hostage taker Leeland Eisenberg was sent back to prison for 3 1⁄2-to-7-years on Thursday for a February probation violation where he went on a 24-hour drug and alcohol bender.

The 3 1⁄2-to-7-year prison sentence is a suspended sentence that stems from the November 2007 incident where Eisenberg strapped road flares to his chest and entered the downtown Rochester campaign office of then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and took campaign workers hostage.
Since being released last November for that incident, Eisenberg has six probation violations on his record.
