Father sentenced to 20 years for giving drugs to teenage daughter

MIDLOTHIAN — On July 25, 2016, in the 443rd Judicial District Court of Ellis County, Charles "Trey" Daubitz III, 45, of Midlothian pled guilty to Delivery of a Controlled Substance to a Child, and he was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Starting when she was only 13 years old, Daubitz supplied methamphetamine and other drugs to his daughter. She quickly became addicted and entered into a substance abuse treatment program. After her release from the treatment program, Daubitz continued to supply her with methamphetamine. On more than one occasion, Daubitz took his daughter to drug houses in Ellis and Dallas counties, where they ingested drugs together.

Daubitz was arrested in September 2015, shortly after the girl’s mother found her in possession of methamphetamine.

Daubitz has prior felony convictions for Forgery and Escape in Dallas County in 2008, and for Delivery of a Controlled Substance in Tarrant County in 2011.

"Contrary to the popular narrative being told in our country today, this is the type of drug offender that is going to prison for a long time. Daubitz is not some simple drug user possessing a small amount of narcotics, and only harming himself. He has done significant harm to others," Ellis County District Attorney Patrick Wilson said.

"The criminal justice system has provided him with multiple opportunities to reform and rehabilitate, through both probation and parole. This 20-year prison sentence is not the result of the failures of our society. This sentence is the result of the failures of Trey Daubitz."
