Carriere man gets life without parole in sex-offender registry case

4-17-2014 Mississippi:

Donald Caves prosecuted as habitual offender

A Carriere man has been sentenced to life without parole for conviction of failing to register as a sex offender, District Attorney Hal Kittrell said Tuesday.

Donald Allen Caves, 45, was found guilty April 9. Judge Anthony Mozingo deferred sentencing for a pre-sentence investigation.

Kittrell said a Pearl River County jury believed testimony that Caves changed his address and failed to notify authorities.

He was convicted of touching a child for lustful purposes in 1990, accessory after the fact to auto burglary in 1998 and felon in possession of a weapon in 2005.

His latest felony investigated by the Pearl River County Sheriff's Office and prosecuted by Assistant District Attorneys Kim Harlin and Lauren Harless.

"Repeat offenders such as Donald Caves pose a threat to the safety of our community and should be sentenced to life without the possibility of parole," Kittrell said in a news release. ..Source.. by ROBIN FITZGERALD
