A Lexington man faces possibly decades in prison after being found guilty of kidnapping and raping a woman in December 2013.
Parico Coffey, 21, was convicted in Fayette Circuit Court of first-degree rape, kidnapping, first-degree robbery, and two counts of sodomy. A jury returned the verdict Wednesday evening.
Jurors recommended consecutive sentences of 10 years each for kidnapping and robbery, 13 years for rape, and 13 years on each count of sodomy to run concurrently.
The sentences would add up to 46 years, if the court elects to follow the jury's recommendations, the Fayette Commonwealth's Attorney's office said.

Coffey is scheduled for sentencing June 12.
According to initial reports, the woman was sitting in her Ford Taurus at a Speedway station at Versailles Road and Alexandria Drive in the predawn hours of Dec. 17, 2013.
Police said an armed man forced his way into the woman's car. He shoved her to the passenger side of the vehicle, took the steering wheel and drove away with her.
Sometime after the assault, the woman escaped from the car and began knocking on doors on Bordeaux Drive, begging for help. Police found her there.
Her car was found later, abandoned in a parking lot at the Gardenside Shopping Center.
U.S. marshals arrested Coffey nearly two months later in Inkster, Mich.
