(Chatham, VA) – A 42-year-old Altavista man will spend the rest of his life in prison for sexually assaulting a 61-year-old woman last year. The victim told the court that Floyd Oliver Hunt, Jr. broke into her home on October 6th after she had gone to bed and attacked her repeatedly. She was finally able to escape and call police after he fell asleep. A Pittsylvania County jury convicted Hunt of multiple sex charges in the case in December, and recommended a sentence of seven life sentences. Judge Stacey Moreau upheld that sentence yesterday.
