A Texas judge sentenced a man who sexually assaulted and infected two young girls to life in prison.
David R. Wilson, 33, was already a convicted pedophile when he molested his 23-month-old niece and another 14-year-old girl,
He had previously spent four years in jail for sexual assault when he took in his young niece because her parents were habitual drug users.
In November 2014, medical officials discovered the child had genital injuries that required reconstructive surgery.
After she tested positive for a variety of STDs, including HIV, chlamydia and genital herpes, authorities were notified.
Upon conducting tests on all four people who lived in the child’s household, it was clear who was the suspect: her uncle, who also had STDs.
Although he had chlamydia and a relevant criminal history, authorities did not arrest him.
Around the same time, a 14-year-old girl informed authorities Wilson had sexually assaulted her. She tested positive for several STDs and was also pregnant.
The victim was sexually assaulted inside Wilson’s pickup truck, the statement by the Houston Police Department says. The victim also told police she was sexually assaulted by Wilson on several other occasions.
“Wilson admitted to investigators he sexually assaulted the victim numerous times over the past couple of years and also had intimate relations with several unidentified females,” the report added.
Wilson was charged with “super aggravated sexual assault” — an enhanced charge because of the age of the younger victim, his niece.
The jury took an hour to find Wilson guilty. He was sentenced to life in prison.
“It’s a monster that does this kind of crime, this guy doesn’t deserve one minute less than the maximum punishment,” said legal analyst Joel Androphy.
