Washington County Boy Pleads True to Indecency with a Child

By  | 

A 13 year old Washington County boy has pleaded true to several counts of aggravated sexual assault and indecency with a child.

The boy was charged in September with six counts each, after allegations surfaced that he sexually assaulted young children between the ages of 5 and 9 at a Chappell Hill mobile home park.

On November 22, the juvenile pleaded true to four counts of aggravated sexual assault and five counts of indecency with a child.

In exchange for that plea, the state will not proceed on the other three counts.

In a plea bargain agreement the boy received a seven year, one month determinate sentence.

The juvenile was immediately committed to the Texas Youth Commission (TYC) where he will have to serve a minimum of three years but may be held for the entire sentence.

After the juvenile reaches the age of 16, TYC may petition the juvenile court to transfer the juvenile to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ).

After the minimum of three years, TYC may hold him longer, transfer him to TDCJ, place him on TYC parole or transfer him to TDC (adult parole).

In TYC, the juvenile will receive extensive sex offender treatment.

After the seven year one month sentence is complete, the juvenile must follow all sex offender registration requirements for 10 years.
