Franklinton man gets 25 years for molesting 3 teens

From District Attorney Warren Montgomery:

FRANKLINTON—District Attorney Warren Montgomery reports that Jonathan Young, 36, of Franklinton, was sentenced Monday (July 8) to serve 25 years in prison without the benefit of parole, probation, or suspension of sentence for molestation and other inappropriate behavior with three juveniles over a period of at least four years.

Young pleaded guilty in March to molestation of a juvenile, indecent behavior with a juvenile, sexual battery, and contributing to the delinquency of juveniles. District Judge Peter Garcia sentenced him to 25 years in prison on the molestation charge, seven years for indecent behavior, 10 years for sexual battery, and two years for contributing to the delinquency of juveniles. The sentences are to be served at the same time.

In separate incidents, Young supplied two teenage boys with alcohol, touched them inappropriately, and performed oral sex on one of them. In a third case, Young sent sexually explicit photos to a teen boy. Young faces similar outstanding charges in Mississippi.

The Washington Parish case was investigated by Detective Demi Rice of the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office and prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Jay Adair. Family members of the victims said they were pleased with the outcome of the case.
