Cameron, TexasKWTX)- A Milam County jury found 51-year-old Mark Mason guilty of the ongoing sexual abuse of a small child, a felony in the first degree, and then sentenced him to life in prison.
According to the arrest affidavit, an 8-year-old boy reported the sexual assault on September 20, 2020, and the victim told the coroner that it happened in a house on the 100th block of 12th Street in Cameron.
The child reported that the first incident occurred when he was in first grade, during winter break, when Mason and his wife “had sex in front of him.”
When asked if this happened again, the victim stated that it would happen nine times, and Mason and his wife had sex on the victim’s bed while the victim slept.
The boy also told the police that he was once forced into sexual acts by Mason’s wife.
Mason was immediately taken into custody after the conviction. Prosecutors said he would never be eligible for parole.
