A judge in Tishomingo County Circuit Court has sentenced Roy Steven Roberts, 64, to serve 12 years on each charge.

Prosecutors recommended for Roberts to only serve 8 years in prison, but Judge Paul Funderburk gave him the tough sentence since he denied his guilty during the pre-sentence investigation.

Looking back at Roberts record, in 2017 he was wanted in Texas for the Mississippi charges.

He was captured and then set free on a $30,000 bond until his hearing Thursday, February 6th, 2020.
