JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A man was sentenced Friday to 50 years in prison after allegedly sexually assaulting one woman and attempting to sexually assault two others.
Keith Deontay Love, 23, pleaded guilty last month to False Imprisonment, Attempted Sexual Battery, Attempted Sexual Battery with a Firearm, Sexual Battery with a Firearm and Kidnapping with a Firearm, according to a release from the State Attorney's Office.
Love was also designated a Sexual Predator. He will be required to serve a minimum of 25 years in prison and have a lifetime of Sexual Offender Probation.
The battery and attempted battery took place during the summer of 2010, according to the release.
The first attack involved a 23-year-old woman. Love was talking with her while she was waiting for public transportation and offered to give her a ride home.
Instead, he took her to a cemetery and tried to force her to have sex. She was able to get away and call police.
The second attack was two months later. Love asked a 23-year-old woman who was walking if she needed a ride. She said no and Love forced her into his car, drove her to a park and sexually assaulted her at gunpoint.
Three days later, Love kidnapped a 17-year-old girl who was trying to end her online relationship with Love. He took her to a vacant parking lot and attempted to assault her at gunpoint. She was able to get out of the car and call police.
Detectives were able to link Love to the cases through descriptions from the victims and his tag number.
