SUGAR LAND (Covering Fort Bend News) – A 43-year-old Sugar Land man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child. Calvin Ray Alley requested that the court asses his punishment.
Evidence presented by prosecutors Melissa Muñoz and Jenna Rudoff showed that the defendant engaged in sexual conduct with a 12-year old female in Sugar Land in 2017. The child disclosed the sexual abuse to a relative, who subsequently contacted the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office. Fort Bend County Precinct One Deputy Constable Cory Hansen (formerly an investigator with the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office) investigated the cases.
The defendant’s spiritual leader, brother, and mother testified on the defendant’s behalf during the sentencing hearing. The defendant also testified, admitting to the offenses.
The child’s mother, a representative from the Fort Bend County Community Supervision and Corrections Department, and the child’s therapist testified on behalf of the State.
Lead prosecutor Melissa Muñoz said “This defendant gained this child’s trust. He gained the trust of the child’s family. And then he violated that trust. This child showed great courage in coming forward and telling someone about the sexual abuse. It is because of this child that Calvin Alley will not be able to harm any other children.”
“Holding Alley accountable for his crimes would not have been possible without the courage of this child and the support her family provided her. We are so proud of her and her family,” said prosecutor Jenna Rudoff.
“Working together with the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office, Child Advocates of Fort Bend, and all the other agencies involved in this case led to justice being served once more in Fort Bend County,” said District Attorney Brian Middleton.
