DALLAS A judge in Dallas has ordered life in prison for a convicted child sexual predator who violated rules of his civil commitment to a halfway house.
The Dallas Morning News reports 62-year-old Paul Harvey Andrews was sentenced Tuesday following emotional testimony from one of his victims.
Andrews was convicted in 1975 and 1985 of kidnapping and sexually assaulting children in Dallas County. He was sentenced to 75 years in prison in the 1985 case.
Andrews in 2010 was paroled but was deemed a sexually violent predator. He was sent to a halfway house where administrators say he refused to take prescribed medications, walked out of a sex offender treatment session and didn't properly charge a GPS tracking device.
A manager testified Andrews said he wanted to return to prison.
