Texas Man Sentenced To 725 Years For Child Sexual Assault

BRENHAM (August 17, 2013)—Benny Joseph Walker, 65, has been sentenced to 725 years in prison for sex crimes against two young children.

A Washington County jury in Brenham sentenced Walker to three 75-year prison terms for each of the three sexual assault counts on which he was convicted and also assessed four-year terms for each of 125 child pornography charges.

The sentences are to be served consecutively.

Walker was arrested in June after the two children told a relative that he molested them while they were staying at his rural home about 90 miles northwest of Houston.

District Attorney Julie Renkensaid Walker would not become eligible for parole for 185 years.
