Sex offender gets life for assaulting teen

COBB COUNTY, Ga. -- A Norcross man will spend the rest of his life in prison after being convicted of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl.

David Christopher Roberts, 43, was found guilty Friday of child molestation, aggravated child molestation and enticing a minor. He was acquitted of rape and false imprisonment.

A Cobb County senior judge sentenced Roberts to life in prison without the possibility of parole. He has been a registered sex offender since 1992, when he was convicted of raping a teenage girl in Indiana, and also has two felony drug convictions.

The Cobb County incident happened Aug. 6, 2012, when Roberts spoke with his victim over a phone chat line and arranged to meet her on the playground at Pitner Elementary School near Acworth.

He was arrested in Tennessee by U.S. Marshals in July 2013. The victim provided police with the DNA evidence needed to track down Roberts, according to prosecutors.
