WACO, TX (KXXV) -

A Bellmead man convicted of nine counts of child sex crimes has been sentenced to life in prison. Willie Eugene Pearson was found guilty on all seven counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, and two additional counts of indecency with a child by contact.

Pearson was sentenced to seven 99 year sentences for aggravated sexual abuse and two 20 year sentences for indecency. Judge Matt Johnson ordered six of the sentences to be served consecutively and one to be served concurrently.
