LAMAR COUNTY, TX-- A Lamar County man will spend the next 15 years behind bars for sex crimes against a child.

The District Clerk's Office says, 69 year old Danny Daniels pleaded guilty Tuesday to two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child, and two counts of indecency with a child, sexual contact.

Judge Bill Harris sentenced Daniels to 15 years for each count, but the sentences will run concurrently.

In November, Daniels turned himself in after a parent filed a report that he had a sexual encounter with a young girl. He's awaiting transfer into a Texas Department of Criminal Justice prison.
