Prosecutors in District Attorney General Charme Allen’s Child Abuse Unit obtained a fifty-two-year sentence against a man who raped his stepdaughter.
Doyle Wayne Mason, Jr., 37, was convicted by a jury of thirty-six counts, including eleven counts of Rape, eleven counts of Incest, eleven counts of Statutory Rape by an Authority Figure, and one count each of Aggravated Sexual Battery, Sexual Battery by an Authority Figure, and Solicitation of a Minor. Judge Steve Sword imposed the sentence today after reviewing victim impact testimony.
In a three-day trial in January, Assistant District Attorneys Rachel Russell and Joanie Stewart explained to the jury that Mason became the victim’s stepfather when she was three years old. Mason began sexually assaulting the victim several years ago when she was eleven years old. He then started raping the child from the time she was thirteen until she was fifteen. The victim’s mother finally learned of the abuse when she saw explicit text messages that Mason sent the victim and found a receipt for a promise ring that Mason gave to the victim. Knoxville Police Department Investigator Patty Tipton interviewed Mason who admitted sexual activity with the victim and stated he wanted to have children with the victim.
“This offender preyed upon and manipulated a child he had a duty to protect,” said DA Charme Allen. “This lengthy sentence ensures that Mason will never again harm a child.”
Let’s hope this monster rots in hell- better yet, let the prisoners take care of him-PRISON JUSTICE!
FILTHY CHILD MOLESTING PILE OF EVIL.
