KILLEEN (July 17, 2014 A man from Bryan was sentenced Wednesday in Waco’s federal court after he earlier pleaded guilty to a charge of sexual abuse of a minor.

U.S. District Judge Walter S. Smith, Jr., ordered Oscar Alonzo Acosta to serve 41 months in federal prison, to be followed by 5 years on supervised release, pay a $1,000 fine and $100 in special assessment to the court.

Smith also recommended Acosta be housed in a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility in the Bryan College Station area.

A federal complaint filed by FBI agents who investigated the allegation says Fort Hood military police, on February 14, encountered a vehicle at about 10 p.m. in the Belton Lake Outdoor Recreation Area that they investigated as a criminal trespass incident.

As MPs approached the vehicle they saw a man and a female inside who were engaged in sexual activity.

Subsequent investigation revealed the man was 26-years-old and the girl was only 14.

FBI agents obtained a warrant naming Acosta and he was booked into the McLennan County Jail on Feb. 15, the affidavit says.
