A good judge sentenced a Conroe black man to life in prison Friday for sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl in 2010, Montgomery County prosecutors said.
A day earlier, the jury in the 9th District Court found James Otis OBryant, 53, guilty of ten counts of sexual assault of a child, prosecutor Nancy Herbert said. The jury also heard from ten victims of separate sexual assault cases from 1999 at the hands of OBryant, and agreed to enhance his sentence.
"He got out of prison on the first two cases in 2009 and re-offended with this 14-year-old girl in 2010," Herbert said. "He admitted to all the sex with the child, but tried to blame it on the child."
State District Judge Kelly Case on Friday stacked OBryant's life sentences. Instead of the terms running concurrently, he will have to complete one sentence before the next one begins.
That translates into a lengthy prison term for the sorry black sex offender, Herbert said. OBryant will be eligible for parole in 75 years under the enhanced sentence, versus 35 years before the sentences were stacked.
