Violent offender walks away from 19 counts of child pornography, sex assault charges: ‘Nothing is being done’

A Texas man who pleaded guilty to aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and stalking unexplainedly was recently let off on multiple charges—including sexual assault and 19 counts of child pornography, prosecutors announced.

According to KENS, the Comal County Criminal District Attorney’s Office recently confirmed that they reached a plea deal with Jason Dean Hunter, 38, which will allow him to serve concurrent prison sentences of 10 and 15 years and be given credit for two years time served. Documents obtained by the news station show that as part of the plea deal, prosecutors dismissed charges of child pornography, sexual assault, and solicitation to commit capital murder of a person under 10 years of age.

Earlier reports indicated that Hunter was charged in 2016 for stalking a woman he’s believed to have sexually assaulted and threatening to kill her unborn child.

“I’ll cut that f*****g baby I love you I’ll put [it] in a f*****g blender,” he said in a message obtained by the San Antonio Express-News.

KENS reported that Hunter’s criminal history dates back to 1998. Hunter’s ex-fiance and one of his victims, Jessica Collins, filed assault charges against Hunter in 2007 and said she believes Hunter has at least 12 victims.

Hunter was ultimately acquitted of assaulting Collins. She claimed that, during her trial, the judge kept sending her out the courtroom because Hunter said he was distraught by her presence. She said she never got to hear his testimony as a result.

Collins said she was in court for the most recent trial and harbors anger at authorities for not taking her case seriously years earlier.

“Twelve years later after my trial, and there’s another girl and all these other girls keep coming out of the woodwork,” Collins told KENS. “And afraid to take a stand and tell Comal County what happened to them, because we feel that there’s no justice. Nothing is being done.”

Marissa Dixon, who also claims to have been also abused by Hunter, told KENS she didn’t realize that her abuser had other victims.

Alarmingly, another woman who said she dated Hunter from late 2011 to early 2012 alleged he routinely beat her and sexually assaulted her. Though she called the police on him, the woman told the news station that she was terrified to face him in court and ultimately allowed prosecutors to offer him a plea deal. Despite this, she said Hunter would still send her threatening messages from jail

“I was terrified of this man, but I’m not anymore,” the woman wrote. “I want everyone to know who this monster is because he will be out on the streets looking to prey on more women.”
