An Ennis, Texas, man was sentenced to 50 years behind bars for the repeated molestation of a 5-year-old girl.
William Kyle Anderson was convicted of continuous sexual abuse of a child, according to the Dallas Morning News. The abuse began in 2012, and the now 8-year-old testified during trial about the multiple occasions on which Anderson forced her to engage in sexual acts.
“It was clear to all in the courtroom that she was embarrassed as she recounted the details of the abuse,” the DA’s office said in a statement.
Anderson’s computer was also seized in the investigation, with authorities discovering images of child pornography and erotica.
Anderson does not have the option of parole and must serve his sentence until his 87 years old.
