Final defendant in Hopkinsville sexual assault case accepts plea agreement
The final defendant in a Hopkinsville sexual assault case accepted a plea agreement.
Attorney General Andy Beshear said the assault happened in October 2014 at a house party in Christian County. At the party a 15-year-old boy was sexually assaulted while he was unconscious.
Four Hopkinsville men were suspects in the sexual assault.
On Monday one of the suspects, 22-year-old Dayton Jones, entered a plea deal.
Jones agreed to a 15 year sentence on first-degree sodomy, first-degree wanton endangerment, and distribution of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor.
Jones must serve at least eight and a half years of his sentence before he is eligible for parole. He was also serve an additional five years of conditional release at the completion of his sentence and must register as a lifetime sex offender.
Beshear says the combined sentences of the four defendants total nearly 60 years.
