Victoria Man Sentenced for Offense of Continuous Sexual Abuse


On Friday, October 22nd, the Honorable Judge Robert C. Cheshire sentenced Michael Delong to thirty (30) years for the offense of Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child Younger than 14 Years of Age. The offense has no eligibility for parole; therefore, the defendant will serve the sentence day for day.

Assistant Criminal District Attorney Brian Hrach prosecuted the charge. Mr. Hrach said, "This will help the victim in her continued recovery." Criminal District Attorney Steve Tyler commented, "The Sheriff's Office did a great job in the investigation and we are proud of the victim's courage."  He added, "Given that this offense does not allow for parole, it is more than likely that he will spend the rest of his days behind bars."
