SHERMAN, TX - A Sherman man is headed to prison for molesting a nine-year-old girl.
Grayson County prosecutors say 52-year-old Sammy Eugene Morales pleaded guilty this morning in 59th District Court to indecency with a child/sexual contact and was sentenced to 10 years in the Texas Department of Corrections.
Morales inappropriately touched the young girl in 2009. He was indicted in December of last year for aggravated sexual assault of a child, but that charge was dismissed as part of a plea agreement.
Morales will be eligible for parole in five years.
