TYLER, Texas (AP) - A third East Texas gang member has been sentenced to prison for raping a 12-year-old girl after a September high school football game.

A judge in Tyler on Monday sentenced 19-year-old Glenn Authar Williams to 40 years in prison. Williams in April was convicted of aggravated sexual assault of a child.

Prosecutor Guy Conine says the victim attended a football game in Tyler and then went with three girls she knew to the home of one of the men.

Conine on Tuesday told The Associated Press that the victim did not know the men. Brandon High, who's 20, and 19-year-old Josh Baker in March pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault of a child. Each was sentenced to 15 years in prison.
