A Paradise man was sentenced to 30 years in prison for sexually assaulting a family member.
JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -
A convicted sex offender was sentenced to prison after being found guilty of sexually abusing the young sister of a woman who tried to help when he was down on his luck.
Jackson County Circuit Court Judge Kathy Jackson sentenced Darnell Donte Marion to serve six years in prison without the possibility of parole. He will remain on probation for nine years after he is released and will have to register as a sex offender.
A jury found Marion, 27, guilty of touching a child for lustful purposes Aug. 1.
Investigators said the abuse happened between January and March of 2013. The victim was only 7 years old at the time.
"This defendant was taken in by a friend while he was down on his luck. He repaid her by fondling her sister while she was away,” said District Attorney Tony Lawrence. “The sentence imposed must be served without the possibility of parole, and the defendant is required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.”
"I commend the courage displayed by the young victim in confronting her abuser. Hopefully this penalty will help her family close a difficult chapter in their lives," said Assistant District Attorney George Huffman.
Jackson also ordered Marion to pay $1,500 in fines and all court costs.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – A registered sex offender in southwestern Missouri man is jailed on $200,000 bond after being accused of sodomizing an 8-year-old girl.
The Springfield News-Leader reports that 53-year-old Randy Law of Springfield is charged with first-degree sodomy.
Law separately is charged with misdemeanor assault after authorities say he attacked the girl’s father with a shovel and shoved her aunt to the ground last month.
Law became a registered sex offender after he was convicted of first-degree statutory rape and two counts of first-degree statutory sodomy in connection with sexual attacks on three children between the ages of 9 and 10 in 2003. He was sentenced to eight years in prison.
Online court records do not list an attorney for Law who can speak on his behalf.
