Local man gets 40 year prison sentence

A Weatherford man pled guilty to aggravated sexual assault and child pornography charges in District Court in Weatherford Thursday and was sentenced to 40 years in prison.

39-year-old Donnie Lee Harwell pled guilty to the November, 2015 aggravated sexual assault of a 13 year old girl and to five possession of child pornography counts before District Judge Graham Quisenberry.

It won’t be Harwell’s first trip to prison—he was sentenced to the pen in 1997 and in 2002 on burglary of a habitation charges. He won’t be eligible for parole until the year 2037.
