A jury sentenced Doug Stapp Jr., 52, of Slaton, to life in prison for aggravated sexual assault of a child Thursday. He will also concurrently serve 20 years in prison for two counts of indecency with a child by contact.
Earlier Thursday, the same jury found Stapp guilty of the charges.
Stapp has been in the Lubbock County Detention Center since 2014 on multiple counts related to the sexual abuse of children.
In the case that went to trial starting on Monday, the indictment originally listed four children as victims. The indictment was later changed to one child, but multiple victims were allowed to testify.
Court records said the abuse went on from January 1, 1995, though October 1, 2014.
The maximum penalty was 99 years or life in prison.
