Jail for man who abused girl for a number of years

A BURNTWOOD man who sexually abused a young girl has been jailed for 32 months.

Ex-serviceman William Turner started indecently touching the girl when she was only seven years old and continued the abuse for a number of years.

A pervert has been locked up indefinitely after grabbing a young boy in the street and subjecting him to a horrific daylight sex attack.

Despite the statewide decrease in staff-on-youth assaults at juvenile correctional facilities, the rate of youth-on-youth assaults has increased following the 2007 legislative reforms.

City leaders in Corsicana are worried about what the likely closure of a 124-year-old youth detention facility that houses mentally ill juvenile offenders will mean for the town’s economic future.
