Repeat sex offenders get lengthy sentences


PARKER COUNTY — David Anthony Jones

Jones, a Springtown resident, pleaded guilty to two different counts of sexual assault of a child and received 20-year sentences that were stacked, meaning he must serve one sentence before starting the second.

Jones was convicted of committing two different sexual acts against a 16-year-old girl in November 2010.

Jones’ criminal history played into the decision to stack the sentences, according to Swain.

“He had some convictions for other crimes, including a prior sexual assault conviction from Tarrant County in ‘93,” Swain said.

The Tarrant County conviction was for aggravated sexual assault of a child under 14 years old, according to Swain, who said Jones was a registered sex offender at the time of the Parker County offense.

“He’ll be well into his senior citizen years when he’s looking at release,” Swain said.
