A 25-year-old Jacksonville man is going to jail for 25 years for forcing a 4-year-old girl to perform a sexual act on him in 2016, according to court documents.
Jvaun Owens pleaded guilty this week to a capital felony charge of sexual battery. He was then sentenced to 25 years in prison and must register as a sexual predator once out of prison.
The incident occurred in 2016, when Owens forced his then-girlfriend’s 4-year-old daughter to perform a sexual act on him in a bathroom. The girl told her mother after Owens asked for forgiveness from the victim’s mother, according to an initial arrest report.
The incident may have taken place in a public bathroom, according to the report.
