Cordarryl Stevenson, the Cook County inmate who attacked a correctional officer in Kankakee while he was housed here in May 2016, was sentenced Tuesday to 15 years in prison.

Kankakee County has a rent-a-cell program that houses inmates from Cook County, as well as federal prisoners awaiting trial and immigrants being deported by ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement).

Prosecutor Ed Pentuic argued for a 15-year sentence, and Stevenson's public defender, Trey Brasel, argued for the minimum, six years.
