A former educational assistant with the Birdville school district has been sentenced to life in prison without parole for fondling two students in a computer lab, according to the Tarrant County district attorney’s office.
James Carroll Glawson, 60, was convicted on Wednesday of continuous sexual assault of children under 14, which is punishable by 25 years to life in prison without parole, a news release states.
Evidence showed that during the 2009-2010 school year, Glawson fondled two students who helped him clean the computer lab at Foster Village Elementary School in North Richland Hills.
Glawson lured the students to the lab with the promise that they could play video games, the release states.
Court testimony showed that Glawson also “played Santa Claus and visited schools at Christmas,” the release stated.
The jury assessed the sentence on Thursday.
