DUMAS -- A Dumas man is sentenced to 50 years in prison for molesting a child under 6 years of age in Moore County.
Daniel Louise Flores, 18, pled guilty to two counts of Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child. The offense carried a punishment range of 5 to 99 years or life in prison.
Flores chose to have Judge Ron Enns assess his punishment. Flores sought probation from the court; however, Judge Enns declined to make such a finding.
District Attorney David Green, whose office prosecuted Flores, reported that the victim’s family was pleased with the sentence. “This family has gone through a terrible ordeal, but now that the case is over, we are hopeful that they can begin to move forward.”
Under the current parole laws in Texas, Flores will not be eligible for parole until he has served at least one-half of his sentence.
