Collin County District Attorney Greg Willis announced that Alejandro Amoles, Jr., 40, of Allen, was sentenced to 50 years in prison without the possibility of parole for Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child. "This child suffered an entire year of unspeakable abuse before bravely reporting this predator to a trusted family friend," Willis stated after sentencing.
Amoles had access to the child through a relationship with the child's family. He started sexually abusing the child at age 5. The next year, the child disclosed the abuse to a family friend who was in town for the weekend. The family friend then reported the abuse to law enforcement.
Detective Chad Hermes with the Wylie Police Department investigated the case. The child was forensically interviewed at the Children's Advocacy Center of Collin County and disclosed details about the sexual abuse.
The jury found Amoles guilty of Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child and assessed punishment at 50 years in prison. By law, a sentence for Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child is without eligibility for parole. Judge Richard Davis presided over the jury trial.
Assistant Criminal District Attorneys Geeta Singletary and Lindsay Wozniak prosecuted the case, assisted by District Attorney Investigator Kim Voigt-Eanes, Victim Assistance Coordinators Casey Hendrix and Ruth Ruiz, and Legal Secretaries Christy Ware and Raman Kaur.
