Jack Sanders Gregoire, 23, of Fort Myers, was adjudicated guilty and sentenced to 25 years in prison for a crime spree involving robberies against several victims.
In early December 2021, the defendant met a victim at their home after conversing with them on a dating app. After entering the home, he robbed the victim at knife-point. Later in December, on Christmas Day, the defendant targeted the same victim again. He pulled up next to the victim in a parking lot, robbed them at gun-point, and threatened to kill them.
The following day, the defendant met a second victim on the dating app. While inside the victim’s car, he robbed and threatened them. When the victim exited the car and screamed for help, the defendant sped away in the victim’s car.
On January 3, 2022, the defendant broke into a Fort Myers home just before midnight, while the residents were inside, and stole several items. The defendant entered one resident’s bedroom, grabbed them by the neck, and threatened them to be quiet.
Days later, the defendant met up with another victim after conversing with them on a dating app. During that meeting, he asked the victim to drive him to pick up a friend. Once they got there, the defendant started to punch the victim in the face and head and robbed them.
In each case, the victims did not know the real identity of the perpetrator. The Fort Myers Police Department investigated and determined Gregoire’s identity.
Assistant State Attorney Anastasia Snetkova prosecuted the case.
