Man determined to be habitual offender sentenced to 60 years
BATON ROUGE- A Baton Rouge man with no less than 18 arrests and four felony convictions has been sentenced to 60 years in prison as habitual offender.
The stiff sentence that 42-year-old Cornelius Wilson received from state District Judge Tony Marabella prompted prosecutor Dana Cummings to dismiss pending drug-related charges of racketeering, conspiracy and illegal possession of a firearm.
Wilson's prison term came on the heels of his May 29 conviction, his fourth felony conviction, on drug charges, including possession with intent to distribute cocaine and oxycodone.
