A convicted sex offender in Houston, TX is back behind bars.
According to the Houston Chronicle, 33-year-old David Richard Wilson has been charged with the aggravated sexual assault of his niece, a 23-month-old toddler, and his ex-girlfriend’s 14-year-old daughter. Law enforcement confirmed both have reportedly been infected with HIV and herpes as a result of the heinous crime. However, the infant was also diagnosed with chlamydia.
Court documents stated that the incident occurred sometime last year. The toddler was reportedly sent to live with family in Houston because the parents are battling drug addiction, reports ABC-13. In November, 2013, medical examiners discovered the abuse when the child was taken to the doctor. The toddler had to have reconstructive surgery performed on her genitalia as a result of damage from infections. Doctors told investigators the child “had to have been sexually assaulted as evidenced by the presence of three sexually transmitted diseases,” reports Click 2 Houston.
Out of the four people residing in the home, the affidavit revealed Wilson was the only to test positive for HIV. However, he wasn’t arrested at the time.
Then, in September, a 14-year-old girl spoke candidly of her sexual encounters with Wilson during a discussion with a caseworker for the Children’s Assessment Center. She revealed she’d been having sex with Wilson for the past two years and she’s now pregnant. Following her confession, she was also tested for sexually transmitted diseases. Officials confirmed she also tested positive for herpes and HIV.
Wilson’s charged were upgraded to super-aggravated sexual assault and the sexual assault of a child because this is not his first offense. Back in 2004, Wilson was found guilty of sexual assault of a child and served four years in prison. He is currently being held without bond in the Harris County Jail. He is scheduled to appear in court on Friday, October 31. If convicted of the sexual assault of two more children, he reportedly faces the possibility of life in prison.
