Port Orange Man Sentenced to 20 Years for Sexually Battering Children – Designated Sexual Predator

 

DAYTONA BEACH – A Port Orange man will not be released from a state prison facility until he turns 79 following his conviction on 4 counts of sexual battery against children. Leroy Feathers, 59, entered guilty pleas to two counts of Sexual Battery on a Victim under 12 and two counts of Sexual Battery on Victim 12-18. Feathers’ prison term will be served day-for-day and won’t be eligible for gain time. Upon his release from prison, Feathers will be placed on 30 years of sex-offender probation and will have no contact with any victims or children. He was designated a sexual predator at the sentencing today, July 18, 2016.

 

            Feathers had no prior criminal history. In entering the pleas to the charges, Feathers avoided a possible life sentence after a trial. Also, by avoiding a trial, the Victims in these cases were spared reliving the traumatic events and having to go through the trial process.

 

            Assistant State Attorney Erica Kane, of the State Attorney’s Career Criminal Unit, prosecuted the case. Circuit Judge Terence Perkins presided over the case and pronounced sentence.
