[ARCHIVED] 05/19/2016 - Four Stacked Life Sentences in Child Sex Abuse Case

San Antonio, Texas, May 19, 2016: This morning, 227th District Court Judge Kevin O’Connell sentenced Willie David Floyd, age 32, to four consecutive, or stacked life sentences. Last month, a Bexar County jury found Floyd guilty of four counts of Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child.

In 2014, a then 7-year-old girl made an outcry to an employee at a children’s shelter that Floyd had sexually abused her. The abuse occurred in April and May of 2014. Additionally the victim, now 9 years old, made another outcry a year later that Floyd had sexually abused her special needs brother as well, who was 6 years old. Local child advocates told jurors about the trauma the young girl experienced from the abuse by Floyd. During the trial and at today’s sentencing hearing, Floyd maintained his innocence. Today, prosecutors asked Judge O’Connell to stack the life sentences, and the motion was granted.

“This man’s behavior is disgusting and this is what will happen to animals who prey on children and special needs children,” said District Attorney Nico LaHood. “I am very proud of the hard work of prosecutors Anna Scott and Marissa Giovenco.”

Because of the stacked life sentences, Floyd is not eligible for parole for 120 years. Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child is a 1st degree felony, punishable by 5-99 years or life in prison and up to a $10,000.00 fine. Assistant District Attorneys Anna Scott and Marissa Giovenco from the Child Abuse Unit prosecuted the case against the defendant in the 227th District Court.
