44-year-old Weatherford man pleads guilty in sex assault of two girls

A 44-year-old man pleaded guilty Monday to charges of aggravated sexual assault of a child and attempted indecency with a child.

Rodney Jessie Watson, of Weatherford, was sentenced to 25 years and 10 years in prison.

This is why a lot of parents are concerned about having their children spend the night at someone else's house, said Jeff Swain, Parker County prosecutor.

Rodney Jessie Watson, of Weatherford, was accused of fondling two 12-year-old girls who told their parents they were molested after returning home from a sleepover at Watson's house last November.

The girls said Watson walked in and out of the room and to another room where a computer was located, so investigators seized the computer and discovered that Watson had downloaded or viewed adult pornography on the same night that the victims described the sexual assault happening, Swain said.

Watson has no prior arrests or convictions and will be eligible for parole in 2022, Swain said.
