The Hays County District court convicted 55-year-old Richard De La Cruz of San Marcos Wednesday on a charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child.
District Court Judge Charles Ramsay sentenced De La Cruz to 30 years in prison.
De La Cruz had been placed on deferred adjudication last March for sexually assaulting a 10-year-old child in 2000. However, De La Cruz failed to comply with the conditions of sex offender probation, according to Hays County District Attorney Sherri Tibbe.
De La Cruz will not be eligible for parole until 2024.Email | Print
