MCLENNAN COUNTY - A McLennan County jury found a man guilty of his second sexual offense, and as a result, he was sentenced to an automatic life sentence.

On Thursday, Jose Carmen Garcia Jr. was found guilty of indecency with a child by contact for molesting a child  at a North Waco home.

Garcia was also convicted of indecency with a child back in 2002 and served 5 years in prison for that crime.

Because this was Garcia's second conviction for a sexual offense, he gets an automatic life sentence.

The McLennan County District Attorney's Office released a statement on Garcia's conviction. "Jose Carmen Garcia was a registered sex offender who continued to prey on children in our community. We are pleased that this serial pedophile will finally spend the rest of his life behind bars,” said Michelle Voirin, Assistant District Attorney.
