Prosecutors say a Memphis man has been sentenced to 240 years in prison for his involvement in a 2012 home invasion. The Shelby County district attorney's office says 34-year-old Cornelius Banks was sentenced Friday after he was convicted in August on charges including aggravated kidnapping, aggravated rape and aggravated burglary. Banks and two other men forced their way into a North Memphis home on April 27, 2012, and demanded money and drugs from the three men inside. The victims were handcuffed and held for about nine hours during which at least one man was sexually assaulted. The case was handled by the DA's Multi-Agency Gang Prosecution Unit.
