    Oakton man involved in South Riding drug incident sentenced

    An Oakton man was served a four year, 11-month sentence March 8 for his role in a 2011 drug dealing altercation in Loudoun County.

    On Dec. 10, 2011, Erick Joseph Cox, 19, of Oakton, and two friends drove to a South Riding residence to purchase illicit drugs. During the incident, Cox and his friends attacked a victim, repeatedly beating him with a baseball bat, according to reports.

    The victim suffered multiple contusions, lacerations and a number of permanent injuries.

    As part of his sentence, Cox was ordered to pay more than $40,000 in restitution to the victim’s family and insurance company for medical expenses incurred as a result of the attack.

    Judge Benjamin N.A. Kendrick handed out the sentence in Leesburg. Cox entered a plea of guilty to one count of felony malicious wounding in Loudoun County Circuit Court on Nov. 13, 2012.

    Kendrick ordered five years and one month of suspended time for Cox, who will be placed on supervised probation for five years upon his release.

    I knew a guy that did 4 years for burning a car (with nobody in it, his first offense). He had a public defender.
    This guy gets 4 years and 11 months for nearly killing someone. It must be nice to be from Oakton and have well to do parents.
