A man betrayed his girlfriend by having sex with her young daughter behind her back, according to police in New York.

Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown announced that the Jamaica, Queens, man has been convicted of sexually assaulting the young girl over a three-year period, beginning when she
was only seven years old.

“The facts alleged in this case chronicle a frightening ordeal of sexual violence that went on for years. By using his friendship with the victim’s mother, the defendant took advantage of an innocent child for his own sexual gratification.

“He has now been convicted of being a pedophile and is deserving of a sentence reflective of the cruelty and selfishness of this crime,” District Attorney Brown said.

Shaking Jones, 36, of 114 Road, was convicted of predatory sexual assault against a child, in the first-degree, course of sexual conduct against a child and endangering the welfare of a child.

Supreme Court Justice Richard L. Buchter ordered Jones held without bail following his conviction.

Jones faces up to life in prison.

According to the police investigation, Jones was dating the 7-year-old girl’s mother when he regularly and repeatedly sexually assaulted his young victim.

The abuse went on for three years.

Jones was arrested after the victim disclosed to an adult cousin what he was doing to her behind her mother’s back.
