NASSAU, BAHAMAS – A man convicted of raping a woman during her morning workout has been sentenced to 25 years.

In October a jury unanimously convicted Christopher Forbes of two counts of rape and armed robbery.

The victim was walking on Marshall Road on May 6, 2022, when she was confronted by Forbes who was armed with a cutlass.

He dragged her into the bushes, where he raped her twice. Then, he took two cellphones from her.

Forbes confessed to raping and robbing the married, mother of five in his videotaped police interview.

But he claimed the sex was consensual at his trial.

Forbes, who fired his lawyer and represented himself, did not call any witnesses at his trial or take the witness stand.
