What a waste of taxpayers dollars to keep this animal alive.
"How long will he actually serve?" is a good question. Fortunately, I have the answer.
Based on first hand knowledge of this case, each count of aggrevated sexual assault of a child carries a possible sentence of 5-99 years. However, the law in Texas provides for a mandatory LIFE sentence for prior offenders in cases involving children.
Eric Wayne Stanford will serve a minimum of 35 years before he will be eligible for a parole hearing. In plain English, he will be 71 years old in prison before we even begin to talk about 'time off' for good behavior.
My personal opinion is that he will probably not make it that long...

A repeat offender.............who would have thought such a thing (I'm being sarcastic). People wonder why I have been pushing so hard to keep these predators away from our schools and daycares. This is disgusting!!!!
Glad to see the father was talked out of taking action that would have made it a huge regret. A parental emotional reaction is to attack others in this manner but the child needs both parents support to move on. This type of person convicted has to deal with others everyday that will make his sentence miserable.
