Mays, Cameron arrest.jpg

Third Judicial Division B Judge Tommy Rogers handed down two life sentences, plus 20 years to Cameron Kinte Mays on Thursday.

Mays was convicted in April of aggravated kidnapping, aggravated rape and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

The sentences will be concurrent — served at the same time — and are not eligible for parole, probation or suspension of sentence.

Rogers said that there was no victim impact statement, but that the victim “dramatically and eloquently testified to her absolute terror” during her testimony at the trial.

About 30 local residents and two dogs got a sneak preview Thursday evening of the first mile of what’s expected to become Ruston’s Rock Island Greenway biking and walking trail.
The trail follows the abandoned Rock Island Railroad bed.

“I think this is fantastic,” Tracy Hanks, of Ruston, said after completing a trek along the segment that stretches through the woods from West Kentucky Avenue to the Interstate 20 service road.

Hanks was reared not far from what was, until 1980, the functioning north-south rail line. She still lives nearby.

Louisiana Tech scored in five different innings and plated more runs against No. 16 Rice than any other team in Conference USA this season in a 12-2 win over the nationally-ranked Owls to open a three-game series at J.C. Love Field at Pat Patterson Park in Ruston.
Rice entered the game with the best pitching staff in Conference USA, but the Bulldog bats were a force to be reckoned with on the night after Tech put up 12 runs on 12 hits, including three home runs, to record the team’s fifth win over a ranked opponent this season.
