LUFKIN, TEXAS -

An Angelina County judge has ordered a mental health evaluation for the 38-year-old Lufkin man who sexually assaulted an 8-month-old baby boy in March 2013.

Judge Barry Bryan of the 217th Judicial District Court ordered the mental health evaluation for Randy Lee Casper Thursday morning. Bryan's decision came in lieu of a prison sentence. Casper pleaded guilty to a first-degree felony charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child back in October 2013.

Casper originally appeared in Bryan's court on Oct. 29 for a bench trial. After he pleaded guilty, a pre-sentencing investigation was conducted. Depending on the outcome of the mental health evaluation, Casper could face a prison sentence of 5 to 30 years.

"I'm glad that he admitted to what he did," the victim's mother said in a previous East Texas News story. "He deserves what is going to happen to him. I hope he goes to the state penitentiary for time for him to sit there and think about what he did."

According to the arrest warrant, a Angelina County Sheriff's Office deputy was dispatched to an Angelina County residence on March 22. The mother and father told the deputy that their baby had been sexually assaulted by Casper.

The mother explained she became suspicious when she started seeing evidence that the baby had been molested. She said her and the father confronted Casper and he admitted to molesting the baby on more than one occasion.

When the deputy interviewed Casper, he said he had touched the baby in that area "to see if he pooped."

A SANE exam was conducted, which showed redness and acute trauma to the baby's rear end.
