The Lee County Sheriff’s Office confirms that a sex offender has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

On October 6, 2020, Lee County deputies responded to a false imprisonment call near Loma Linda Drive and McGregor Blvd in Fort Myers.

Detectives discovered that the suspect, Christopher Goulet, 68, offered his victim a ride home after seeing her walking down the street.

Instead of driving his victim home, he took her to his house and forced her to perform sexual acts with a group of men.

The victim requested to be let out of the car several times, but Goulet refused to let her go. The victim later escaped and called for help after jumping out of the moving car.

Deputies located and later arrested Goulet.

On Tuesday, February 8, he was found guilty of false imprisonment and human trafficking. He is sentenced to 20 years in a state prison.
