James Douglas Shaw - Repeat Sex Offender

A Bakersfield man was sentenced to 190 years in prison on child molestation charges Thursday.

James Douglas Shaw, 56, was found guilty in December of six felony counts, including committing lewd and lascivious acts with a child and annoying or molesting a child while having specific prior criminal convictions.

He was arrested May 9.

Early Thursday morning, Judge Michael Bush sentenced Shaw to 165 years to life, plus an additional 25 years, said Deputy District Attorney Mark Pafford, who prosecuted the case.

James Douglas Shaw is not Jim Shaw of the Buckaroos.

James Shaw pleaded no contest to sexual battery in 2000 and served 90 days in jail, according to the Kern County Superior Court Web site.
