Hughes Sentenced on Lesser Felonies

Rakim Marquis Hughes

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – A Wabash Valley man convicted of criminal confinement heard his sentence.

Rakim Hughes received a three-year prison sentence this morning from a Vigo County judge.

That’s after a woman accused Hughes of forcing her to perform sex acts at knifepoint at a Terre Haute motel.

Hughes was found “not guilty” on more serious charges, including attempted rape. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
