Judge Stern Raises Sentence For Kacy Cannon

Tuesday, August 17, 2004

Criminal Court Judge Rebecca Stern on Monday raised the sentence for Kacy Dewayne Cannon from 20 years to 32 and a half years in a rape case.

Judge Stern last month had given the lower sentence to Cannon, 30, of 14th Ave. based on the recent Blakely decision of the U.S. Supreme Court.

But prosecutors asked her to reconsider, saying that under the ruling the sentence could be at the midpoint rather than the lowest end.

The sentencing range was 20-45 years.

Cannon was convicted for raping an elderly woman in 1999.

Another man was first charged, but he was cleared by DNA, which matched that of Cannon.
