Danny Richard Minor was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for sexually abusing several children and impregnating his own daughter.
Between 2002 and 2009, while Minor was living in Plano, Texas, he molested three children — two of whom were relatives. One of the children came forward in 2009, but conflicting statements forced investigators to halt any action against Minor, My San Antonio reported.
In 2009, Minor moved to The Colony, Texas, where his abuse of children continued, reports CBS DFW.
The case was finally brought against Minor in June 2014, when another victim came forward. That victim’s story corroborated the one detectives heard in 2009.
Shortly after that, two additional cases were formed against Minor, who was then arrested. “A paternity test confirmed that Minor is the biological father of his daughter’s child,” Collin County District Attorney’s Office spokesman Bill Dobiyanski said in a news release.
On July 30, Minor was convicted of three counts of Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Young Child and two counts of Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child. The next day, he was given a life sentence for each count, CBS DFW reported.
