Man sentenced to 50 years for sexually assaulting four-year-old daughter

Jason Isaac Herman Hines was sentenced to 50 years in prison in Thursday, April 14, after being found guilty of two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child. The victim of the sexual assault was Hine's own four-year-old daughter, 

Due to the age of the victim, Hines will have no possibility for parole. 

Hines, a resident of Tulsa, Oklahoma,visited his children and their mother in Round Rock on November 22, 2013 and video-recorded himself aggressively simulating sex against the victim while her mother was away at work. The victim complained of pain later that day, and her mother took her to the hospital after Hines returned to Tulsa two days later. 

Hospital staff called the Williamson County Sheriff's Office and Hines was arrested in Tulsa a week later. 

Assistant District Attorneys Jo Poenitzsch and Blake Ewing presented the video evidence of the assault in court. 

The victim’s mother had found the camera in the defendant’s Tulsa apartment shortly after the assault, and detectives at the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office recovered the video images Hines had attempted to delete.

Judge King found Hines guilty of both counts charged by the State and, after hearing additional testimony from the victim’s mother at the punishment phase of trial, sentenced Hines to 50 years on each count, the sentences to run concurrently. 

Hines, 36, will not complete his sentence until he is 83 years old.      

Poenitzsch praised the verdict, saying, “This little girl’s innocence was stolen by the man who was supposed to be her protector, and she’ll spend the rest of her life trying to overcome the unspeakable things he did to her.  It’s only fitting that he spends the rest of his meaningful life in prison, so the victim and her mother can move forward knowing they’re safe from him.” 

Ewing praised the Sheriff’s Office for their work on the case, saying, “Without the efforts of every officer involved in this case, we could not have given the judge the critical evidence she needed to hold this man accountable for his despicable acts.”
