Mt. Vernon Man Sentenced for Sexually Assaulting Family Member

MT. VERNON – A 36-year-old Mt. Vernon man was sentenced Tuesday in Jefferson County Court to 15 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a minor family member.

Antonio Foulks pleaded guilty to a Class 1 felony criminal sexual assault of a family member under the age of 18.

Foulks will have to serve the 15 year sentence consecutively to a 20 year sentence handed down in July 2021 after he pleaded guilty in that case to Class X felony charge of delivery of between 15-100 grams of meth. A Class X charge of aggravated delivery of meth was dismissed per that plea agreement.

Foulks will have to complete the 20 year sentence before he begins serving the 15 year sentence handed down Tuesday.
