A Lexington man who was convicted of sexual assault in 2004 was arrested Thursday and charged with raping a 15-year-old girl.

Daveon L. Jackson, 26, was expected to appear in Fayette District Court Friday afternoon.
The alleged attack happened about 3 a.m. Wednesday. According to court records, Jackson forced the teen to have sex with him.

He was arrested about 11:15 a.m. Thursday at War Admiral Place. The victim was an acquaintance of Jackson, according to court documents.

Jackson was accused of raping another 15-year-old in 2004. He was charged with first-degree rape after the girl said Jackson pulled her into some bushes and sexually assaulted her, court records say. The victim said Jackson told her, “Don’t try to bring no rape charge on me.”

He pleaded guilty to an amended charge of third-degree rape in March 2006 and had to register as a sex offender, according to court records.

Jackson was arrested again in Nov. 2006 for violating probation. Court records say he tested positive for marijuana and had drug paraphernalia, marijuana and “sexually arousing materials” at his apartment.

    Well, if convicted it should be automatic castration, this piece of trash has already proven he can’t be rehabilitated and will continue to molest teenage girls as long as he has the equipment to do it. If that doesn’t work, then execute him.

  2. Donna Says:

    People deserve a fair trail and he could have been lied to. God saves people

    I think that too many prosecutors are handing out plea deals to maintain their batting average. I would rather a prosecutor go after 10 1st degree rape convictions and lose one than that cut deals with five that have little if any jail time. A felony conviction and sex offender registration is a poor consolation prize.
