FORT MYERS (CBSMiami/AP) — It will be a long time before this Florida man breathes free air.

Willie Foust, who pretended to be an Uber driver to sexually assault a college student, has been sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Foust pleaded guilty to sexual battery after the victim testified at his trial.

The woman was an 18-year-old Florida Gulf Coast University freshman when she summoned an Uber car to take her back to her dorm from a bar during a rainstorm.

Authorities say the 35-year-old Foust saw the woman and pulled up. She asked him if he was her Uber driver and he said yes.

She got in and he drove her to a parking lot, where he assaulted her.

The State Attorney’s Office announced Monday that the sentencing happened last week.
