In San­ta Rosa Coun­ty, Flori­da, a 53-year-old man named Jef­frey Hol­ley has been arrest­ed for alleged­ly kid­nap­ping the same woman twice.

The first inci­dent occurred in August 2022, result­ing in Hol­ley’s con­vic­tion and sub­se­quent ear­ly release from prison on Feb­ru­ary 8, 2024. Two months lat­er, Hol­ley report­ed­ly kid­napped the same woman again.

Accord­ing to an arrest affi­davit, Hol­ley stayed with the woman for four days after his release before the sec­ond inci­dent occurred. On the evening of April 26, when the woman told Hol­ley he need­ed to find a new place to stay, he alleged­ly assault­ed her, took her phone and keys, and restrained her with duct tape.

The woman attempt­ed to escape, but her truck would­n’t start. Twice, she tried to flee to a neigh­bor’s home, only to be dragged back to the garage by Hol­ley, who restrained her with rope and duct tape until the police arrived.

A neigh­bor called for a wel­fare check after they could­n’t reach the woman and wit­nessed Hol­ley tak­ing zip ties from her truck. Respond­ing offi­cers found the woman in the garage, while Hol­ley fled into the woods and was appre­hend­ed by a K‑9 unit.

San­ta Rosa Sher­iff Bob John­son described the repeat kid­nap­ping as a “text­book exam­ple of the revolv­ing door” of crime. “When he got sen­tenced the first time for doing the exact same thing, he got sen­tenced to two years in prison.

So obvi­ous­ly that did not have an effect on him because as soon as he got out he did it one more time,” John­son said.

Hol­ley now faces mul­ti­ple charges, includ­ing kid­nap­ping, domes­tic vio­lence bat­tery, and theft. This sto­ry high­lights the impor­tance of address­ing sys­temic issues sur­round­ing crime, pun­ish­ment, and reha­bil­i­ta­tion in the Unit­ed States.
