Kentucky man sentenced; county shop burglarized
By SUE WATSON
A Kentucky resident was sentenced recently by circuit court judge Robert Elliott after pleading guilty to three counts of sexual abuse of a minor, according to sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
Curtis Lee Perkins Jr., 68, of 1936 Nate Rogers Road, Boston, Ky., pled guilty to sexual battery of a juvenile, touching a child for lustful purposes and bribery of a witness, according to court records. Perkins was arrested August 17, 2009, in Marshall County in the Lundine Road area and charged. He was indicted in the May 2011 term of circuit court and pled guilty to the three counts. Elliott sentenced Perkins to 10 years imprisonment on each count, and ordered seven years suspended and that Perkins serve three years imprisonment in the Mississippi Department of Corrections. The three 10-year sentences run concurrently.
Perkins must register as a sex offender after release from prison.
In a separate incident June 1, a Marshall County man was sought on charges of attempted ravaging of a woman and also with grand larceny, according to Dickerson.
He said Peaire Cortez Dorsey, 24, of the 100 block of James Black Cove, was arrested in Memphis, Tenn., by U.S. Marshals June 3 for allegedly attempting to ravage an Olive Branch woman who lived in the area of James Black Road near the Barton/DeSoto County line.
Neighbors allegedly saw Dorsey struggling with and beating the victim, who narrowly escaped and was taken into an apartment by an onlooker and good Samaritan. Dorsey fled the area and was arrested two days later, Dickerson said. Dorsey was also charged with grand larceny in the taking of property of the victim.
