LaForest Served 17 Years

LACONIA, N.H. -- The man convicted in a rape case that helped give New Hampshire longer rape sentences is free, after serving his maximum prison sentence.

John LaForest, 42, was released Friday after serving 17 years.

He pleaded guilty to raping Florence Holway, 75, in her Alton home in 1991.
The outspoken Holway went public after the rape, successfully lobbying the Legislature to increase the penalties for sex offenses. Her story was made into an HBO movie.

LaForest initially was paroled a year ago, but was jailed in July after violating parole.
