HOUSTON (AP) — A man who pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a then-11-year-old Texas girl two years ago has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Jared McPherson didn’t say anything before he was sentenced Friday in a Liberty courtroom. He had been free on bond and was taken into custody.

McPherson’s pleaded guilty to a charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child and the sentence was part of his deal.

McPherson was among 20 males charged in a series of sexual assaults against the girl over a matter of months. All six juveniles and six of the 14 adults charged, including McPherson, have accepted plea deals. Three other adults are to be sentenced later Friday.

One defendant opted for a trial and was convicted and sentenced to 99 years in prison.
