BILOXI, Mississippi — Judge Lisa Dodson has ordered a 23-year-old Biloxi man to serve 20 years in prison for sexual battery and an unrelated burglary.
The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1sH9aSU) Dodson sentenced Carltavious Causey to a total of 37 years but suspended 17 years, leaving 20 to serve without eligibility for early release.
Dodson sentenced him on guilty pleas in Harrison County Circuit Court on Monday.
Assistant District Attorney Scott Lusk said the sexual battery involved an assault on a woman who lived in the same apartment complex as Causey.
Lusk says the burglary involved an unlocked truck on Sept. 18, 2012. Biloxi police found Causey with items stolen from the truck about 30 minutes after the burglary.
