Timothy Gregg, 43, of McKinney, received 65 years in prison for repeated sexual abuse of an 8-year-old child, announced
Collin County District Attorney Greg Willis.
“This child showed great courage in disclosing the abuse. And because she did, this predator can’t harm another child,” added Willis.
Gregg began molesting the child in East Texas and continued when the victim’s family moved to Collin County. Trusted by the family, Gregg spent a lot of time around the child, who disclosed the abuse to a grandmother in July 2015.
McKinney Police Investigator
Natalie Irwin investigated the case. The child was forensically interviewed at the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County and provided details of the abuse. A physical examination, performed by a sexual assault nurse examiner, corroborated the details the child provided.
“These specially trained detectives, interviewers and nurses are vital to holding child predators like Timothy Gregg accountable. Collin County is fortunate to have these professionals protecting our children,” said Willis.
The jury returned a guilty verdict Thursday for Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Young Child and Indecency with a Child. Judge
James R. Fry then sentenced Gregg to 65 years in prison for the continuous sexual abuse and 10 years for indecency with a child.
