CROCKETT, TX (KTRE) - A Houston County jury has sentenced a Kennard man to 198 months in prison after he pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a girl over a two-year period.
Kevin Hathorn pleaded guilty to sexual assault of a child on Tuesday, before the case was going to trial, according to prosecuting attorney Roger White. The jury then listened to testimony to determine his punishment.
According to a previous report, Hathorn first had sex with the girl when she was 12 and continued to do so until she was 14.
White said other charges of aggravated sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child were dropped in exchange for his guilty plea.
