PALESTINE —

Continuous Sexual Assault of a Child carries a possible punishment of a minimum of 25 years to maximum of life and is one of only three Texas crimes that does not allow for parole. The others are Capital Murder and what is referred to as “Super” Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child.

“The victim is relieved this case is behind him. He is an amazing young man and I know he will do great things in spite of the crimes committed on him,” Lowe said. “I appreciate the fine job Ms. Watkins did in trying this case and the jury’s work in listening to this very emotionally difficult case.”
