MIDLAND, Texas (KOSA) - A Midland man will be spending several years in prison after being found guilty of child sex crimes.

On Friday, Albertico Cruz was sentenced to back-to-back terms of 15 years in prison for two counts of second-degree indecency with a child under 14 years old. He will serve the terms consecutively.

Cruz was found guilty by a jury back on Thursday, September 30.

During the trial, the jury heard from the victim about the abuse that led to her telling an adult.
