LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — A West Texas man accused of molesting a girl for years and allegedly giving her his ex-wife's wedding ring has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.
Dale Wray Fulford of Slaton (SLAYT'-n) was sentenced Friday in Lubbock. The 77-year-old Fulford in March pleaded guilty to production of child pornography.
Investigators say Fulford during 2013 and earlier this year enticed a juvenile to engage in sexually explicit conduct that he recorded her using a digital camera. The girl's parents contacted authorities in January after she told them of the alleged abuse.
Fulford still faces state charges of continuous sexual abuse of a child and sexual assault of a child.
Prosecutors have said Fulford helped the victim's parents financially, looked after the child and gave the now-teenager his former wife's ring.
