HOUSTON (AP) - A Houston man has been sentenced to three life
terms in prison for sexual assault of a child and 720 years more
for possessing child pornography.
Rodney Williams changed his plea to guilty during jury selection
Monday in a case prosecutors say involved a 5-year-old girl.
Investigators say the case began last July, when his common-law
wife found digital images on a camera that showed him sexually
assaulting a child. Investigators also recovered more than 70
images of child pornography on computers in his home.
Williams, who's 23, must serve three life sentences for super
aggravated sexual assault of a child under the age 6.
He was also sentenced to 720 years in prison for the child
pornography found on his computer and digital camera.
