Bay County Robber and Rapist Sentenced

A man was sentenced to 25-years in prison Tuesday, for robbery with a deadly weapon, armed sexual battery, and armed kidnapping.

41-year-old Benjamin Jerome Forest of Panama City was reportedly on drugs when he entered a Hardee's in Lynn Haven, and sexually battered a 29-year-old worker at knifepoint.

Forest entered pleas of no contest.

Under Florida law he is required to serve at least 85-percent of his sentence.
