Dallas-area man sentenced to 150 years for sexual assault of a child

An Ellis County man was found guilty Friday on two counts of sexual assault of a child and was ordered to serve 150 years in prison. 

As reported by WFAA-TV, 33-year-old Daniel Paul Hammons was sentenced after a 14-year-old child came forward with allegations against him.  During the trial, two other children testified that Hammons inappropriately touched them.

The jury sentenced Hammons to 75 years in prison per count of sexual assault and was ordered to pay a fine of $10,000. The sentences are to be served consecutively.

He will be eligible for parole in 2076.
