Man gets life for child sex crime
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A man was sentenced to life in prison for sexual battery on a child.
Floyd Thomas Rupp, 49, was sentenced Wednesday afternoon to life in prison. Rupp was convicted in September on four counts of Sexual Battery and one count of lewd or lascivious molestation of a minor.
In January 2013, the victim reported multiple sexual encounters she had with Rupp since 2006. During that time, Rupp touched the now 14-year-old victim inappropriately and repeatedly forced her to have sex with him.
