A 41-year-old habitual offender who lured a 16-year-old to a motel using social media and then held her at gunpoint, beat and sexually assaulted her in 2021 agreed to two 25-year prison sentences this week, Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg announced.
“These kinds of predators are always looking for ways to hurt and take advantage of people,” Ogg said. “By making a plea agreement in this case, we can put him in prison for decades and spare the victim from having to testify about her ordeal.”
David St. John pleaded guilty Tuesday to sexual assault of a child between the age of 14 and 17 in exchange for the 25-year sentence. He also pleaded guilty to a charge of felon in possession of a weapon in exchange for a 25-year sentence, which will run concurrently.
