A Victoria man faces up to 99 years in prison and a $10,000 fine after a jury found him guilty Wednesday of sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl.
Isaac Gonzalez, 30, was also found guilty of two counts of indecency with a child.
Gonzalez is scheduled to be sentenced at 1:30 p.m. Sept. 6 by Judge Robert C. Cheshire.
Assistant District Attorney Johna Stallings said the abuse went on for about three years before the victim's mother called the Victoria County Sheriff's Office.
"Most children don't outcry immediately," Stallings said, opting not to go into much detail. "We have to backtrack and find out what exactly happened and find witnesses."
The range of punishment for aggravated sexual assault with a child, a first-degree felony, is five to 99 years or life in prison with a $10,000 fine.
The punishment range for a conviction of indecency with a child is two to 20 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine, Stallings said.
Gonzalez's attorney Timothy McCoy declined to comment about the case.
