A teacher’s aide in Texas has been sentenced to a lengthy prison term without the opportunity for parole after she repeatedly raped an 11-year-old student.

“On Friday, Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson announced a jury handed down a 60 year jail sentence to Jessica Jewel Corin Benton, a former Mesquite Independent School District teacher’s aide convicted of multiple sexual assaults on the male minor,” according to Breitbart.

 

According to a local ABC affiliate, Benton admitted to having sex with the boy at least 10 times over a period of months after she was arrested for the crime in 2016. The boy attended a different school in the same district, and Benton’s indecency was exposed after her sexual exploits were witnessed by another student who told his mother.

The mother reported what she had learned to the police, who opened an investigation into Benton.

“During the investigation, Mesquite ISD placed Benton on administrative leave,” Breitbart reported. “Ultimately, Benton admitted to detectives she had sex with the boy. They took her into custody on $150,000 bail and charged her with continuous aggravated sexual assaults.”

Benton’s trial spanned from August 21 to August 23, and after 30 minutes a jury delivered a verdict of guilty, and the next day she was sentenced to 60 years imprisonment without the possibility of parole. She faced 25 year to life in prison.

District Attorney Johnson was pleased with the outcome.

Even though we have a dedicated Crimes Against Children unit within the District Attorney’s Office and we work with Children’s Advocacy Center and other law enforcement officials across the country, it took a small child with true courage to speak up on behalf of another child to get this investigation started,” Johnson said. “This verdict should send a strong message, especially with students returning back to school this week that crimes against children will be prosecuted by the DA’s office to the fullest extent of the law.”
