A man convicted in November of sexually assaulting his two stepchildren will serve up to 40 years in prison following final sentencing on Monday.
A jury convicted Gregory Anthony Rodriguez, 31, on 13 charges that included aggravated sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child and assessed sentence ranging from 10 to 30 years. 207th District Judge Jack Robison this week ordered a combination of consecutive and concurrent prison terms totaling 40 years.
Now 15 and 18 years old, the girls were assaulted between 2001 and 2005 while Rodriguez dated their mother. When they started to see each other again, one of the girls told a classmate and a teacher who reported the abuse to authorities.
Assistant district attorney Cathy Compton argued for the state; Rodriguez was represented by San Marcos attorney Tom Garner.
