    It is extremely disturbing that Keith Aaron Prather was only initially given probation. His chat is extremely difficult to read. Not only did he possess child pornography, but he admitted to having a litany of very, very young victims that he had raped. We can be very thankful that he quickly violated that probation, receiving six years in prison, but even that is not long enough.

    Timothy Thompson would receive a stronger sentence for his part in the crime, which included solicitation and sending pornography, but as the following articles discuss, he was already a registered sex offender for a prior rape of a real child.

    Man receives two life sentences for online solicitation of a minor

    A registered sex offender was sentenced to two life sentences in prison Friday for engaging in sexually explicit conversations with a person he believed was a 13-year-old girl.

    A Montgomery County jury in the court of 9th state District Judge Fred Edwards handed down the sentences to Timothy Eugene Thompson, 28, of the Willis area, after Thompson was found guilty on two counts of online solicitation of a minor.

    Because the incidents occurred in the summer of 2006, Thompson will be eligible for parole when he serves one-quarter of the life sentences, which is a minimum of 15 years, Assistant District Attorney Joel Daniels said.

    Thompson's life sentences will run concurrently and not consecutively, Daniels said.

    Thompson was found guilty of sexual assault of a child in Harris County in 2001. Released from prison in 2005, Thompson took up residence in the Willis area, Daniels said.

    Thompson's conviction came 18 months following his arrest in September 2007. Law enforcement officials had seized a computer belonging to Keith Aaron Prather, 47, of the Lake Conroe area, and, through forensic analysis, found both men had engaged in sexually explicit chat on Prather's computer, Daniels said.

    "Both sent images via a webcam to someone they believed was a 13-year-old girl," Daniels said.

    Instead, Thompson and Prather had discussions during July and August of 2006 with a member of Perverted Justice, a private organization that targets sex offenders.

    "It was a fictional persona (the two men) were dealing with," Daniels said. "They (Perverted Justice) were conducting a sting."

    Because of Thompson's prior conviction, evidence during the punishment phase included testimony from children he had assaulted.

    Prather received probation in September 2007 for possession of child pornography, but was sent to prison in January of this year for technical violations of his probation, Daniels said. Prather was sentenced to a prison term of six years.

    From the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office
    April 3, 2009


    A Montgomery County Jury handed down two life sentences to Timothy Eugene Thompson, a registered sex offender, for two counts of Online Solicitation of a Minor. Thompson utilized his computer to engage in sexually explicit conversations with a member of Perverted Justice, a private organization that targets sex offenders, who was representing herself as a 13 year old girl. Joel Daniels, the prosecutor in the case, presented evidence that after the Thompson solicited the "minor" to engage in sexual contact, the case was brought to the District Attorney's Office. Chris Smith, an investigator with the District Attorney's Office and a member of the Montgomery County Crimes Against Children Task Force, obtained a search warrant for the defendant's residence and discovered evidence confirming the illegal solicitation. The defendant had a prior conviction for Sexual Assault of a Child, and punishment evidence included testimony from other children he had victimized.

    "We should all realize that the internet, while a blessing, has become a tool for pedophiles to reach out and victimize our children," said District Attorney Brett Ligon. "Prisons were built to protect society from men like Mr. Thompson. We fully support the hard work of the Conroe Police Department, the Montgomery County Sherriff's Office and the FBI and their task force's pledge to monitor the internet for the perverted tentacles of sex offenders looking to prey on our innocents."

    Both of these men are horrific excuses for human beings, both rapists of young children. This is a perfect example of what internet predators are capable of, and we are thankful these two are off the streets.

    Contributor notes from Blue Bonnet
    Keith Aaron Prather and Timothy Eugene Thompson were friends. They have been friends for many years. They have something besides friendship in common. They both rape children. They also shared an online screen name that they used to try to find more children to further their perversions.

    Keith Prather started the chat. In the chat he thought he was talking to a 13 year old girl. In the chat admits to and discusses rape of innocent children as young as 4. He also sent child porn from his computer. Prather also discusses his "friend" who will bring him to meet the 13 year old girl. This "friend" later turns out to be Timothy Thompson who joins the chat.

    Thompson was very cautious. He had good reason to be. He was already an RSO who had spent four years in prison for raping a child. He knew the law and he knew what would happen if he got caught. It is my opinion that he was present in some of the earlier chats with Prather. We were able to prove that Thompson was present on two days of chat. Each of those days he exposed himself on the web cam as well as discussed his perversions with what he thought was a child.

    Keith Prather pleaded guilty and received probation. He violated his probation and now sits in a Texas prison for six years.

    Timothy Thompson was offered 25 years in a plea agreement but he tuned it down. The case went to trial where the jury convicted him and sentenced him to two life sentences. During the sentencing part of the trial victims of Thompson were able to testify. It was hard for those kids to stand up to their abuser but they did it. They looked right at him and told the jury what happened even with the room packed full of people. I am so proud of them for standing up to their abuser. They are no longer victims. They took back that power – they are my hero's.

    I want to say thank you to Detective Chris Smith for taking this case, and Assistant District Attorney Joel Daniels for all of the hard work they have put into this case. The closing statements that Joel Daniels made were very emotional and moving. Thank you also to DA Mike McDougal for taking my first call about this case and also to DA Brett Ligon for seeing this case through after he took office. I want to thank Judge Edward's 9th District court and all who serve there.

    This is our 342nd conviction since June of 2004, our 39th conviction for 2009, and our 11th conviction in Texas thus far.
