Jason Priest is being charged with CSP of a minor under the age of 13 in both Texas and New Mexico. He is a registered sex offender in both states and served time in Texas for the crime. He now resides in Hobbs, NM to face sentencing in the state, in which the female victim also resides. The victim, in anticipation of a trial, wants to see a conviction for the crimes listed above. Vernon Henning, the District Attorney assigned to the case, expressed a negotiating plea bargain of 6 years prison time. This plea bargain was acceptable to the victim and her family.
In recent developments, Mr. Henning offered a plea offer of NO JAIL TIME in exchange for a plea of "GUILTY". This was not discussed with the victim or the family. The offender took the erroneous plea offer and is scheduled to change his plea on Monday August 25th at 8:30am in the Lovington District Court.
We feel as the victim's family that there needs to be more effort from the District Attorney's office to put at ease, the mind of the victim who every day lives in fear that she will always be looking over her shoulder. She also does not wish any other child to experience the same fate as she did.
This is a personal request to The Honorable Judge Shoobridge to please consider enforcing jail time or allow a trial by 12 jurors of his peers.
