MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas- A man was sentenced to 40 years in the sexual assault of two youth baseball players in Montgomery County, the district attorney says.

The judge sentenced Tucker to the maximum of 20 years for each count and for them to be served consecutively. He will have to serve a minimum of 20 years before being eligible for parole. He will also be required to register for life as a sex offender after his release.
