WF man sentenced for sex crimes against child

WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) - A Wichita Falls man will spend the rest of his life in prison after being found guilty for sex crimes against a child.

Following jury deliberations on Tuesday in 78th District Court in Wichita County, Lester Jack Bowen, 59, was found guilty on four counts of Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child and one count of Indecency with a Child.

Bowen was sentenced to four life sentences that will run concurrently for the Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child charges and the maximum of 20 years for the Indecency with a Child charge that he will serve after the four life sentences.

An investigation began in September 2014 when a victim told authorities Bowen had been sexually abusing them for the previous two and a half years.
