A Norcross man gave marijuana to a 14-year-old and 15-year-old before sexually assaulting them. This was informed by the Gwinnett County District Attorney’s Office. The accused has been identified as Ronnie Antwan Stone (34).

According to the DA’s office, Stone sent a car to pick the girls, cousins, with whom he was chatting online the day after Christmas in 2016. He had met them at a Christmas gathering.

During their interrogation, the girls informed the police that Stone offered them “a drink of some sort” and marijuana after they arrived in his home in Norcross.

While the senior cousin smoked the marijuana, the younger one did not, they told police. Stone had sex with the 15-year-old, said the 14-year-old to the police. He then ordered the 14-year-old into another bedroom, where he raped her, the DA’s office said.

While one of the girls’ mother went to pick them up from the home, Stone had already fled the spot. Later, he informed his girlfriend, who knew the cousins’ family, that he had consensual sex with the girls.

Charges of rape, aggravated child molestation, statutory rape, enticing a child for indecent purposes and contributing to the delinquency of a minor were leveled against Stone on Oct. 23 after a one-day bench trial.

Gwinnett County Superior Court Judge Ronnie Batchelor sentenced Stone to life, with the first 20 years to serve in prison. However, he was acquitted of one charge of aggravated sexual battery and one charge of enticing a child for indecent purposes.
