Sentence in carjacking of sen.'s daughter
A man who pleaded guilty to the violent carjacking of a senator’s daughter in downtown Washington was sentenced Tuesday to nine years in prison, prosecutors said.
The U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia said Steven Alston, 25, of the District, was sentenced in the carjacking last December of the daughter of Sen. Robert Corker (R-Tenn.).
During the incident Alston grabbed her by the throat, choked her and threw her to the ground, before he and an accomplice drove off in her truck, the prosecutor’s office said in a statement.
The accomplice, Dewalden Connor, pleaded guilty to robbery in the incident in March. He is to be sentenced Thursday.
