Hill Country Man Gets 23 Life Sentences in Child Sex Case

Hill Country Man Gets 23 Life Sentences in Child Sex Case

  Talk about giving somebody the max.

 

  1200 WOAI news reports that a Hill Country man who was convicted of sexually assaulting his own daughter for eleven years, as also having a child porn collection in his home, has been sentenced to 23 life prison terms.

 

  State District Judge Dan Mills ordered Robert Areaga to serve all 23 of the sentences consecutively, meaning there is no way he will ever be released from prison.

 

  Prosecutors say Areaga started molesting his daughter when she was four.  When she was 15, she told a counselor at her school in Burnet about the abuse.

 

  Prosecutors said the girl, whose brave testimony helped put her father in prison, will have to deal with the trauma for the rest of her life, so it's only fair that he spend the rest of his life behind bars.
