Christopher Wilson, 31, of Jackson, is going to prison for gratification of lust of a 13-year-old girl, announced Attorney General Jim Hood.
Wilson appeared before Hinds County Circuit Court Judge Winston Kidd on Monday and entered a guilty plea for one count of gratification of lust. Judge Kidd sentenced Wilson to 15 years in the custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections, with 10 years to serve, five years suspended followed by three years of post-release supervision.
The Attorney General's investigation showed that Wilson was dating the mother of the assaulted child and they were living in his mother's home at the time the crime was committed. On Dec. 6, 2011, Wilson's mother arrived home finding Wilson in a locked closet pulling up his pants while the child was lying on the floor with her pants down.
"This office continues to fight for those who cannot fight for themselves, especially our children," said Attorney General Jim Hood. "We appreciate Judge Kidd for putting this sickening defendant behind bars in which he will have plenty of time to re-think the terrible choices he made."
This case was investigated by Perry Tate and prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorneys General Marvin Sanders and Jim Giddy of the Attorney General's Public Integrity Division.
