A 46 year-old Breckenridge man was sentenced to life in prison following a trial on Nov. 20.
Howard Larson Wampler Jr. was found guilty of Indecency with a child by contact.
The crime took place in March 2012 and the victim was 14 years old.
Wampler also had a prior conviction of Aggravated sexual assault of a child in 1990.
District Attorney Dee Peavy said the jury of six men and six women had a quick deliberation on the punishment phase of the trial.
“I was very pleased with the verdict,” Peavy said. “The jury was very attentive throughout the trial. Through all of this, the staff at Dr. Goodall's House was very instrumental in the outcome of this case. They were very helpful in comforting the victim throughout the whole process.”
District Judge Steve Bristow presided over the case.
