Child Molester Sentenced to Decades

Local News

A Wichita Falls man is now sentenced to almost 40 years in prison, but the family of the victim say that sentence is not long enough because of the nature of the crimes he committed.

Freddie Hernandez received two 38 year sentences for aggravated sexual assault of a child, two 15 year sentences  for indecency with a child by contact, a 15 year sentence for attempted sexual assault of a child, and 15 years for promotion of child pornography.

All those sentences, however, will be served together.

Police say the mother saw her 4 year old doing things that made her suspicious, and when she asked him, he told her that was what her ex-boyfriend, Hernandez, did to him.

When interviewed, the boy described sexual assaults and molesting he said happened when his mother was not home.

Other charges involved an 11 year old girl and a first grade girl.

Police say some of the acts occurred when the victim was asleep, and some were recorded.

In a victim impact statement after the plea, a relative told Hernandez: “We are not happy with the 38 years,  so you’re welcome, and God bless.”
