The Office of State Attorney Larry Basford announces that on July 1, 2021, 36 year-old Adam Keith Horne was sentenced to two life sentences and one 10 year sentence. The sentences will run concurrently on each count. Mr. Horne was previously found guilty by a Bay County jury in June 2021 of Kidnapping, Robbery with a Deadly Weapon, and Grand Theft Motor Vehicle. Judge Clark imposed the life sentences after receiving and hearing evidence regarding Mr. Horne’s prior convictions. Mr. Horne had numerous prior felony convictions from North Carolina and had just been released from prison in North Carolina approximately six months before committing these crimes in Bay County.
The case was investigated by Panama City Beach Police Department with assistance from Bay County Sheriff’s Office and FDLE. It was prosecuted by Assistant State Attorneys Jennifer Lieb and Lynelle Dowe.
