PINELLAS PARK — A man who for several hours sexually battered a 12-year-old girl at knife point was sentenced to 36.5 years in prison on Wednesday, police said.
Pinellas Park police arrested Zachary Hulsey and Brettany Hamlin in October 2012 after investigating the battery. Hamlin had assisted in holding the victim down and attempted to console her. She did not try to stop the attack.
Hulsey was originally charged with false imprisonment, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, three counts of sexual battery of a child and one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Hamlin was sentenced to four years on June 19 after pleading guilty to false imprisonment.
