This afternoon, a convicted sex offender was sentenced to 25 years in prison for aggravated sexual assault. Due to COVID-19 procedures, the hearing was conducted via Zoom.
Clovis Joseph Schexnayder, 47, was accused of the Sep. 2016 attack on a 64-year-old woman. The victim was walking to work when an unknown man dragged her into a brushy area and sexually assaulted her. During the offense, the victim said Schexnayder also choked her and threatened to kill her. In Feb. 2017, DNA from the crime was linked to Schexnayder’s in Combined DNA Index System (CODIS). San Antonio Police found Schexnayder was already in custody for failing to register as a sex offender for an unrelated offense and charged him with the new charge.
“Mr. Schexnayder is rightfully headed to prison. We are grateful to the San Antonio Police Department for their investigation of this case, and our prosecution team for all their hard work to assure justice was achieved on behalf of this victim,” Bexar County District Attorney Joe Gonzales said.
Upon his release from prison, Schexnayder must register as a sex offender for life.
This case was prosecuted by the Family Violence Unit in the 379th District Court with Judge Ron Rangel presiding.
