COURT

A registered sex offender from Lampasas was convicted in Coryell County on Thursday of the offense of aggravated sexual assault of a child.

Herbert Franklin Grey, 64, had previously been convicted of molesting two sisters in 2010. In 2015, a third sister came forward about Grey also molesting her.

The girl testified during the trial this week, as did law enforcement and forensic personnel, and 52nd District Judge Trent Farrell, who had interviewed the third sister in 2015.

The jury deliberated for about 3 and a half hours before returning its verdict, according to a press release from the Coryell County District Attorney on Friday.

On Friday, Senior Judge Bob McGregor sentenced Grey to 20 years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
