Alfredo Soto Enriquez - First Texan to be sentenced under Jessica's Law

A Hutto man who was convicted of continuous sexual abuse of a child this month will spend the next 60 years in prison.

Alfredo Soto Enriquez, 36, was accused of sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl over several months last year. He was the first person in Texas to be charged under Jessica’s Law, which carries a minimum penalty of 25 years in prison with no chance of parole and a maximum of life in prison if convicted.

Enriquez also was found guilty of eight counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child and two counts of indecency with a child. A Williamson County jury recommended a sentence of 490 years for Enriquez on Oct. 11.

Today, District Judge Ken Anderson stacked the first charge of continuous sexual abuse and an indecency charge, which means Enriquez will not be eligible for parole until he is 96.
