By  | 

LAMAR COUNTY, TX -- A Fort Worth man has been sentenced to 12-years in prison for child sex crimes in Lamar County.

The district clerk's office says 63-year old Henry Mayes pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault of a child and two counts of indecency. Mayes received 12-years for each of the three counts, but the terms will run concurrently.

In January, Mayes turned himself in after a Lamar County family reported he had sexually assaulted their 10-year old daughter.

He is awaiting transfer to a Texas Department of Criminal Justice prison.
