BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Boca Raton resident Mark Hawkins, a Wells Fargo Vice President at the time of his September arrest on child sexual abuse charges — is now a “Sexual Predator.”
As we reported last September, Hawkins was charged with multiple counts of sexual battery on a person less than 12 years of age. We published the explicit affidavit of probable cause filed in his arrest. You can read it here.
According to the Palm Beach County Clerk’s Office, Hawkins made a deal with prosecutors who, in exchange for one year in the Palm Beach County Jail and 10 months of probation with an ankle monitor, dropped the “sex abuse” charge but had him plead guilty to “battery” and accept the designation as “Sexual Predator.”
Court records reveal that Hawkins received credit for the 163 days he spent in jail waiting for the plea conference. He’s expected to be released just in time to celebrate the one year anniversary of his arrest, although the Judge is mandating that Hawkins remain in jail until “probation has had the opportunity to place defendant on his EM monitor.”
