Jessica-Jewel Corin Benton was hit with the 60 year sentence by a Texas courtroom..A perverted female teaching assistant who had sex with an 11-year-old boy over four months has been jailed for SIXTY years.
Jessica-Jewel Corin Benton will spend over half a century behind bars for the sustained sexual abuse.
The court in Texas also decided she would have no chance of parole, CW33 reports.
Benton was arrested in September 2016 after another student witnessed the behaviour and told his mother about it.
In turn, the mother informed the authorities, said the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office.

Benton was arrested and charged with Aggravated Sexual Assault, a first-degree felony, hence the heavy jail sentence.
The court was told the sickening abuse happened from May 2016 to September 2016.
Once saving grace was that none of the sexual incidents happened on school property.
The victim was not one of Benton’s students, the station said.
But Benton was employed at the time as a teacher’s aide at Mesquite ISD’s Ben F. Tisinger Elementary School, and her victim went to another school.

Initially, Benton was facing a jail term of 25 years to life in prison for the offences.
But the jury listened to her family members and Benton’s therapist and, feeling no sympathy for her at all, returned a sentence of 60 years with no possibility of parole.
District attorney Faith Johnson the station: “Even though we have a dedicated Crimes Against Children unit within the District Attorney’s Office and we work with Children’s Advocacy Center and other law enforcement officials across the county, it took a small child with true courage to speak up on behalf of another child to get this investigation started.
“This verdict should send a strong message, especially with students returning back to school this week that crimes against children will be prosecuted by the DAs Office to the fullest extinct of the law.”
