North Texas child predator sentenced to 60 years without parole

🕐 1 min read

McKINNEY, Texas – Stacy Davidson, 52, of Wylie, Texas, was sentenced to 60 years in prison without the possibility of parole for continuous sexual abuse of a child, Collin County District Attorney Greg Willis announced in a news release Sept. 16.

The sentence was handed down by Judge James R. Fry. By law, a sentence for continuous sexual abuse of a child carries no eligibility for parole.

Although not a relative, Davidson knew the victim and sexually abused her over the course of a year starting when she was 5 years old, Willis said. Then, in November 2018, about three years after the abuse stopped, the child mustered the courage to tell her father about it and her parents reported the abuse to law enforcement.

“Children everywhere are now safe from this monster because of this brave and innocent child’s courage,” Willis said after the sentencing.

Wylie Police Department Detective Amanda Fields and Cpl. Helen Taylor investigated the case. The victim was forensically interviewed at the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County and disclosed details of the abuse, the news release said.

During the punishment phase of Davidson’s trial, prosecutors introduced evidence of a 2015 FBI investigation involving Davidson and child pornography. An FBI Special Agent testified that during their investigation, it was discovered that hundreds of child pornography media files had recently been opened on Davidson’s computer. This was considered by the court when determining Davidson’s prison sentence.

Assistant district attorneys Geeta Singletary and Nick Lawrance prosecuted the case, assisted by district attorney investigators Greg Bowers and Kim Eanes, victim assistance coordinator Casey Hendrix, and legal secretary Christy Ware.
