BATON ROUGE, Louisiana (AP) — A convicted rapist who in 2009 used a stun gun and handcuffs to subdue college students in Louisiana and Mississippi has been sentenced to 27 years in prison for sexually assaulting a Baton Rouge woman.
State District Judge Bonnie Jackson said Tuesday James Crockett Jr. must serve that time consecutive to the 35 years he is serving at a Mississippi prison for raping a college student in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, the day after the Baton Rouge attack.
The Advocate reports Crockett, who was scheduled to stand trial this week on an aggravated rape charge, pleaded guilty Monday to forcible rape.
Jackson said Crockett will serve his Baton Rouge time once he completes his Mississippi sentence. She said the consecutive terms will make it impossible for Crockett to harm another woman.
