Child Rapist Sentenced
DAYTON -- A child rapist was sentenced to 23 years to life in prison for raping two children under the age of 13 and videotaping the assaults.
George E. Jackson Jr., 52, received the sentence today in Judge Dennis Langer's Montgomery County courtroom.
Jackson was found guilty of two separate cases involving children.
Judge Langer said Jackson raped a young boy when he was between 4 and 7 years of age. Jackson videotaped one of those sexual acts.
The Judge said Jackson also raped a 10-year-old girl over a period of time. Police said Jackson befriended the girl's mother and carried on a relationship with her. The sexual assaults happened when he was watching the girl at his Dayton apartment on Hepburn Avenue.
The little girl was in court today and read a statement before sentencing. "Please, please lock this guy up and throw away the key," the girl read crying.
Jackson will be a tier 3 sex offender for the rest of his life.
ABC 22/ FOX 45 is following this story and will have much more coverage coming up tonight on ABC 22 at 6, and FOX 45 at 630.
George Jackson showed no remorse when one of his young victims expressed her pain out loud in court.
"I was 10 years old when this sick man changed my life by raping me." The girl said.
Judge Dennis Langer said Jackson befriended the girls mother, gained her trust and then violated that trust.
He raped the little girl, in late December 2011 while watching her at his Hepburn Avenue apartment.
"I wanted to make sure this person is locked up for life so he can not do what he did to me to anyone else ever again." She read out loud in court, crying.
"Please, please lock this guy up and throw away the key." She added.
Jackson was also found guilty of raping a young boy from the time he was 4 to 7 years of age, and he video taped one the sexual acts.
Judge Langer sentenced Jackson to 23 years to life in prison, and reprimanded him for not taking responsibility for his actions, for not showing any remorse and for not admitting he has a serious problem
"It's very troubling that you do not acknowledge that you are a pedophile." Judge Langer told Jackson.
Just before his sentencing, Jackson changed his plea to one of 19 counts against him; which means he'll be back in court in December. The Judge could add an additional nine years to his prison sentence.
George Jackson will be a tier three sex offender for the rest of his life.
