A Clarksdale man was sentenced to 15 years in prison last month after he pled guilty to charges of rape and robbery.
Cordaro Vishun Foxx, 31, who formerly lived at 316 Florida St., was sentenced by Judge Albert Smith after he pled guilty on Jan. 31 during his appearance in Coahoma County Circuit Court.
Foxx received a 15-year sentence on the charge of rape and 10 years for a robbery and being a habitual offender charges. The sentences will run concurrently, meaning Foxx would serve the lengthier sentence, that being 15 years. Foxx also received five years of post-release supervision once he has served his 15 years in the state corrections system.
Foxx was indicted June 1, 2016, by a Coahoma County grand jury who found that he unlawfully and willfully engaged in forcible sexual intercourse with a woman on July 11, 2015. An Aug. 6, 2015, report from the Clarksdale Press Register said the rape occurred in the 700 block of Lincoln Street as Foxx sexually assaulted a woman inside a motel room in the early morning hours of July 11.
Foxx was also indicted on Dec. 7, 2017, by a Coahoma County grand jury on the charge of robbery as he took $21 from a person on April 23, 2017.
He was also charged with being a habitual offender after he was convicted Jan. 11, 2012, and sentenced to seven years on charges of auto theft and burglary of a business.
In other circuit court action:
* Demarcus Dontrell Flowers, 24, who had a previous address of 905 Sasse St. Building 9 #65, was sentenced to a year in prison by Judge Smith after he pled guilty to a charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. The sentence was handed down Jan. 31.
In addition to the year in prison, Flowers will serve four years of post-release supervision after he’s released from prison.
A Coahoma County grand jury indicted Flowers on Dec. 6, 2018, as they found he had unlawfully had in his possession a .22-caliber revolver on July 13, 2018. He had previously been convicted of the felony crime of shooting into an occupied dwelling.
