If Cresap had made the sentences consecutive instead of concurrent, this
s.o.b. would never see the light of day.

A man has been sentenced to 40 years in prison after pleading guilty
in St.
Bernard Parish to several sex crimes involving juvenile girls.

Jonathan "Gentilly" Hampton, 24, pleaded guilty before state
Wayne Cresap to two counts of forcible rape and three counts of
knowledge of a juvenile. Cresap handed down two consecutive 20-year
sentences in the rape cases, in addition to three 10-year sentences
in the
carnal knowledge cases. The carnal knowledge sentences will be
served at the
same time as the rape sentences.

Hampton was booked in July with the forcible rape of a 14-year-old
girl. At
the time of his arrest, authorities said that alleged rape came to
when the victim began displaying symptoms of a venereal disease that
her to the hospital for treatment.

The Sheriff's Office said Hampton told investigators after his
arrest that
he might have had sex with other underaged girls. And the subsequent
investigation led to two additional underage victims, the St.
Bernard Parish
Sheriff's Office said.

One of the victims is a girl who lived out of state but was in the
area visiting relatives, authorities said.

Hampton pleaded guilty Dec. 16.
