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.
Finnell will be required to serve this sentence day-for-day, with no eligibility for parole.
Additionally, Finnell will be required to register as a sex offender for the remainder of his life and be subject to a lifetime protective order, which protects the victim in this case.
On June 18, 2020, Finnell was indicted for sexually assaulting a child for a period of more than 30 days from the time the child was 12-years-old until the child was 13-years-old.
The Henderson County Sheriff’s Office investigated the case.
