CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Marlon Frazier was sentenced Wednesday to 365 days in the Nueces County Jail, the equivalent of time served.

The mother of the victim spoke to KRIS 6 News, but wanted for us to conceal her identity. She said she was unhappy and uneasy with the plea deal.

"It's frustrating," she said. "His 365 days for even attempting to solicit a minor in any way, shape, or form, when we all know the intent in the long run," she said.

The former CCISD bus driver was indicted in 2019 on five felony counts of possession of child pornography, attempted online solicitation of a minor (a misdemeanor), and attempted possession of child pornography.

The charges arose after screenshots of inappropriate text messages he sent to a Kaffie Middle School student surfaced.

Screenshots of child pornography were also found in his possession.

The mother said that change is needed in the justice system.

"Change will never be made, unless you get loud, change will never be made unless you stand up for change," she said.

The deal, which originally was withdrawn in March, also requires him to have no further contact with the victim.
