Convicted sex offender sentenced to life


A McLennan County jury has sentenced a man who was found guilty on multiple counts of sexual assault of a child, to life in prison.

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.

This sentence comes after the McLennan County Sheriff's Office conducted the investigation against Barnard. The investigation began after an outcry from the victim in August of 2011.

The offenses occurred in a home in the Gholson area and the abuse started when the female victim was 8-years-old and continued until she was 15.
