A jury convicted appellant of four sexual assaults against three victims and sentenced him to 18 years of imprisonment in each case. One of the series of sentences was improperly stacked. A cumulation order in a written judgment may not substantively vary from the cumulation order contained in the trial judge's oral pronouncement of sentence. Because there is no doubt of the trial judge's intent, the cumulation order is reformed and the judgments of the lower courts are affirmed. Court of Criminal Appeals, No. PD-1678-11, 01-09-2013.
