HSB father gets 23 life sentences
July 18, 2013, 7:34 pm by James Walker
A 40-year-old Horseshoe Bay man was assessed 23 life sentences to be served consecutively after a Burnet County jury found him guilty Thursday of repeatedly sexually assaulting his now 16-year-old daughter in 2011.
The man was tried and convicted of sexually abusing his daughter after the family moved to Burnet County in 2011, but the girl testified and Child Protective Services workers testified that she told them that the attacks began years earlier when she was four years old.
The abuse continued until she finally told a school counselor about them in 2011, the girl testified.
Prosecutor Stacy Street assailed the man in her closing argument.
"He is a liar, a predator, a manipulator and a pervert,” Street told the jurors.
