Ronnie Mack Barnard was found guilty on 4 counts of aggravated sexual assault, 4 counts of indecency with a child by contact and 3 counts of sexual assault of a child.

The jury in 54th District Court, came down with the guilty verdict on Thursday and the sentencing phase began Friday morning. The jury sentenced Barnard to life in prison on all counts Friday afternoon.
