DENTON, Texas (AP) — A janitor at a North Texas middle school has been sentenced to 55 years in prison for sexual assault of a 12-year-old boy on campus.

The Denton Record-Chronicle (http://bit.ly/1fjXawH ) reported Tuesday that 63-year-old Ambrocio Mata was sentenced after being convicted of aggravated sexual assault of a child. Prosecutors say Mata in October 2012 had sexual contact with the boy while working at Calhoun Middle School in Denton.

An arrest affidavit indicates another custodian caught Mata and the student standing very close to each other. Further details were discovered through surveillance camera footage.

Mata joined the Denton Independent School District custodial staff in 2005. He was fired after his 2012 arrest.
