     WASHINGTON - James Parks, also known as Antonio Parks, 22, of Washington, D.C. has been sentenced to a 44-month prison term for two sexual assaults that he committed earlier this year, U.S. Attorney Ronald C. Machen Jr. announced today.

     Parks pled guilty in June 2013 in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia to attempted first-degree sexual abuse and misdemeanor sexual abuse.  He was sentenced on Aug. 16, 2013 by the Honorable Robert E. Morin. Upon completion of his prison term, Parks will be placed on three years of supervised release. He also will be required to register as a sex offender for 10 years.

     According to the government’s factual proffer at the plea hearing, on Jan. 25, 2013, Parks was at the home of one of the victims, on 23rd Street SE. That night, Parks sexually assaulted another woman while she was unconscious in an upstairs bedroom of the home. 

     On the night of Feb. 14, 2013, Parks was back at the same home. That night, he and another man forced the resident into the basement, where Parks sexually assaulted her.

     In announcing the sentence, U.S. Attorney Machen praised the work of Paralegal Specialist Jason Manuel, Victim/Witness Advocate Lezlie Richardson and members of the Metropolitan Police Department’s (MPD) Sexual Assault Unit.  He also commended the work of Assistant U.S. Attorney Peter V. Taylor, who investigated and prosecuted this case.
