Kyndall Tyree Hutchins, 34, of North Fort Myers, was sentenced to 30 years in prison as a Habitual Felony Offender, for one count of Unlawful Sexual Activity. The defendant was found guilty in May, following a trial in Lee County.
The crime happened on August 24, 2020, when the defendant raped a co-worker. He followed her from the restaurant they worked at, as she walked to her car, and sexually attacked her in a nearby employee parking lot. The defendant then drove the victim, a teenager, back to the business.
The victim was questioned by co-workers who realized something was wrong and she told them what happened. The Lee County Sheriff’s Office responded. The defendant fled the area after the crime to Rhode Island and was arrested by the Rhode Island State Police and then extradited to Lee County.
Assistant State Attorney Michael Curley, of the Special Victims Unit, prosecuted the case.
