HENDERSON, Texas —  A Henderson County man was sentenced Wednesday to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to continuous sexual abuse of a child.

According to the Henderson County District Attorney's Office, Jerry Neal Finnell, 40, of Trinidad, pleaded guilty to one count of continuous sexual abuse of a young child.
