Convicted Kalamazoo Taxi Driver To Be Resentenced
A former Kalamazoo taxi driver convicted of rape in 2014 will be resentenced, after a high court ruled the guidelines used to sentence him unconstitutional.
40-year-old Robert Prescott is serving between 40 and 60 years in prison, after he was found guilty of raping a customer in the back of his taxi. His appeal was dismissed by the Michigan Court of Appeals, but the judges did order resentencing because the guidelines used in his case have since been ruled unconstitutional by the Michigan Supreme Court.
When he is resentenced, Prescott could get his sentence reduced, or increased, depending on a judge’s review.
