SHERMAN, Tex. -- A Sherman man convicted of sexual assault is to receive life in prison.

A Grayson County jury sentenced Jason Whitten, 19, on aggravated kidnapping and aggravated sexual assault charges on Wednesday.

Police say Whitten and two other men broke into a Sherman woman’s home and robbed and sexually assaulted her last May.

Bryan Shipman, 18, has already pleaded guilty and awaits sentencing. A third man, Douglas Wise, 18, is to stand trial in June.

    I hope all of these boys get justice. Justice for them would be to have there life torn out from under them, like they did to their young victim. Bubba will be waiting for them in the big house. Have fun boys, you are just beging your journey in life. Let me tell you it won't be any fun from here on out.

    yes, he got what he deserved, but I no that he did not have a very good family to guide him, he was left pretty much to defend himself, his family had no morals or self respect so how can the kid get a fair break in life.

    hey sara, whether they have forensic evidence on your low life brother or not, he was there and played a part in it and he will get what he has coming to him. Big bubba will be waitin on him in prison and then he will see what its like to be forced to something you dont want to do. He's guilty - deal with it!!!

    I just wanna say that i do not know this boy, but I do know Douglas Wise. He is my little brother, and I do not know here you people get off trying to be the judge and jury for these boys, I do not know about the rest of them, but I do know, that my lil brother is not capable of hurting a woman like he is accused of, thats why there is no forensic evidence saying that he did. You dont know all the facts, and you dont know these boys. So quit trying to convict them of something that youdont even know they did.
