A Texas City man pleaded guilty Monday to sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl.

Shawn Michael Davidson, 23, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for sexual assault of a child.

Donaldson also pleaded guilty to charges for which he'd been serving deferred adjudication. Deferred adjudication is a form of probation that allows defendants to have criminal charges removed from their record if successfully completed.

Donaldson is guilty of enticing a child with intent of committing a felony for seeking to have sex with another teenage girl in 2012. He also is guilty of criminal mischief between $1,500 and $20,000 for drawing graffiti on Texas City public property.

Donaldson will be eligible for parole after serving half his sentence. He's required to register as a sex offender.
