David Daniels & Husband Plead Guilty to Sexual Assault

By Francisco Salazar

David Daniels and his husband Scott Walters have pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting Samuel Schultz in Houston in 2010.

The plea deal was announced just as the trial was about to begin.

Daniels pleaded guilty to a charge of sexual assault of an adult, a second-degree felony and will face eight years of probation, a lifetime requirement to register as a sex offender and an order that he refrain from contact with Schultz.

According to The New York Times, Daniels avoided the charge of aggravated sexual assault, a first-degree felony, which carries harsher penalties. Walters is facing the same charges.

Schultz released a statement in which he stated “I am glad that the defendants have acknowledged by their guilty pleas the truth of my traumatic experience, and that this portion of my nightmarish ordeal has finally concluded.”
