A man was convicted of raping 4 children, one of whom was 8 years old.
Jon Lance Carson, 44, of Jacksonville, Florida, was sentenced this week to seven mandatory life sentences, with four of the sentences consecutive to each other.
Carson also received four life sentences without parole and eight 30 year sentences, which will run concurrently with each other.
Carson was convicted on seven counts of Sexual Battery on a Child Under 12, eight counts of Sexual Battery on a Child 12 to 18, and four counts of Lewd Molestation on a Child Under 12.
Jacksonville Sheriff’s Officers were notified of repeated sexual abuse by Carson on four child victims. At least one victim was eight years old when the abuse began.
Carson is also charged with two counts of Criminal Solicitation in a related case. The Defendant is accused of trying to hire someone to kill two of the victims in the sexual abuse case so they could not testify against him. A trial date has not been set in this case.
