Basham Pleads Guilty to Sex Crimes

Instead of heading to court, an East Texas man accused of sexual assault will head to prison.

Robert Basham's trial was set to start Tuesday.  Instead, the 25-year-old pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child.  Basham got a 35-year sentence for the sexual assault charge and six years in prison for the indecency charge.

He'll serve those sentences concurrently.
