FORT WORTH, Texas - A man convicted of abducting a girl as she walked to elementary school and molesting her must serve nearly 400 years in prison, a judge decided Wednesday.
Jeremiah Sexton, 23, of Springtown, must serve four sentences of 99 years each.
State District Judge Wayne Salvant, calling Sexton a "serial predator," ordered the sentences to be served consecutively, making the total 396 years behind bars.
A jury Tuesday convicted Sexton on three counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child and one count of aggravated kidnapping.
Sexton was arrested in February and accused of abducting and sexually assaulting a then-9-year-old Arlington girl, investigators said.
A police officer in nearby Grand Prairie had noticed suspicious activity in a car at an apartment complex.
Sexton was nabbed following a chase that ended when his car hit a van and a school bus, authorities said.
The abducted girl was found with Sexton.
A second Arlington girl testified Wednesday that she believed Sexton was the man who abducted and sexually assaulted her in September 2004 while she walked to elementary school.
Sexton, when 17, was convicted and placed on two years of probation for four counts of indecent liberties with a child in Sedgwick County, Kan., court records indicate.
Tarrant County sheriff's department spokesman Terry Grisham said Sexton, following sentencing, was evaluated by mental health officials and placed in protective custody on a suicide watch.
He won't last a month.
I'm betting he wished he was in Vermont.
I guess all the scumbag child molesters should move to Vermont.
He's about to get in touch with his feminine side.
Good for texas.
We can hope--I sure hate the thought of tax payers having to pay for the keep of this less than human piece of garbage.
"I'm betting he wished he was in Vermont."
i LOVE texas and how it is so willing to stick up for its kids!! kudos to the judge!!!
Sorry, didn't know you were in that formerly fine state.
There is an inmate in Mass. who wants to share a cell with this guy.
He'll be out before you know it. What is it, you're eligible for parole after serving half your sentence?
Oh please, let him do it and save us the expense of feeding him. Good job by the judge.
The 60+ victims should all be allowed to extract their own justice when they're grown up.
Note to Judge Cashman - this is how it's supposed to be done.
That's a wonderful idea. I vote "YES"
I'm thinking we should all send him a calendar.
And I'll send the Washington contingent too...
Wish they wouldn't go so easy on them. He should have gotten life. Hey Hey
He won't last 396 days in general population.
Color me stupid, but, how the hell can you serve 396 Years in prison; further more, what happens when you're released?...send your remains(if any) to your next of kin(if any)?
I could never understand this type of sentencing whatsoever.
It means he will never qualify for parole and will leave prison in a box.
What a great judge! I'm pretty sure he just ensured his reelection for darn near eternity.
If technology becomes available to keep this perp alive for 400+ years, do ya think the state will have to employ it, so he gets justice?
I don't think he's the one that's going to be getting in touch with it.
Actually some other guys are about to get in touch with his feminine side. LOL
He'll be getting plenty of justice. In his cell, in the shower, in the laundry room...
A 55 gallon drum of vasoline might be a little more practical given his imminent subjection.
BTW, nice job to whomever the Judge was!
If he doesn't make parole, his "girlfriend" will be 369 years over the age of consent in most states.
Fun and games for him!
Assuming he's placed in general population. Many lawyers for these freaks are successful in getting them placed in protective wings precisely because they will be targets, a courtesy not extended to the small-time, non-violent criminals who quickly become rape targets.
"Color me stupid, but, how the hell can you serve 396 Years in prison;..."
Maybe it'll serve as a precedent for when (if) life spans are extended to 1,000 years or better.
Hope the Kansas judge is pleased with himself. FOUR counts and he gets probation? Glad this Texas judge showed him this just will not stand in his jurisdiction. KUDOS to him and the prosecutor.
Kinda like Methuselah's age, of 960 years ?
It'll might make some people believe parts of the Bible now said to by mythical.
Judge Wayne Salvant has served as judge of the Criminal District Court No. 2 in Tarrant County since 1995. He is a graduate of Southern University, where he also received a law degree. A former investigating attorney for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Salvant also was in private law practice for 18 years. He is a criminal district judge representative on the council appointed by Gov Perry.
He went in as a tight end, and is soon gonna be a wide receiver :)
It looks that way since the courts are handing down such an outlandish reprieve against the perpetrator[s].
I guarantee he will be rehabilitated and in no need of conseling at the end of his stated sentences. That other judge just went about it in the wrong way.
How are you going to sepnd 396 years in prison?
one day at a time....times 114,540 (not taking into account leap years).
Whoops...I mean spend.
We need more judges like Judge Wayne Salvant. He used common sense and logic. Sexton is a predator, he would probably have moved on to murder.
We surely do need more like him. Most murderers of little children don't get sentences like that. And in some places, just 5-10.
I'm betting he wished he was in Vermont.
---Or he had money, was backed by The Nation of Islam and enjoyed having his nose slide off of his face........
Hunh. This time it's the judge who's a Wayne.
