A man who forced his girlfriend into his pickup against her will, hit her mother, and then rammed sheriff’s vehicles when they tried to stop him was given six years in the state penitentiary. Robert Anthony Goff, 38, was sentenced Wednesday by Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley for aggravated kidnapping, domestic assault, reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon, evading arrest in a motor vehicle, and vandalism up to $1,000. The sentence comes after Goff assaulted his girlfriend for several hours at his home on R. Arnold Road near the DeKalb County line before abducting her.
