COLUMBIA, MS (AP) - A Louisiana man accused of using a stun gun and handcuffs during sexual assaults has pleaded guilty to raping a 21-year-old Hattiesburg college student in July 2009.

A Mississippi newspaper reported a judge in Columbia will sentence James H. Crockett, 37, of Chalmette on June 25 following Friday's plea.

Crockett allegedly went on a crime spree through three states, using a stun gun and handcuffs during two sexual assaults.

Authorities said he has a long criminal record, including convictions for burglary, grand larceny and escape.
