WICHITA COUNTY (KFDX/KJTL) — Jurors in the 89th District Court will decide a man’s guilt or innocence for the sexual assault of a 12-year-old girl, then decide his punishment if they find him guilty.
50-year-old Christopher Petty is on trial for the assault and also a separate charge of a robbery in 2015.
The victim said she and her family were living in a home with Petty in 2014, and he came into her bedroom one night in December and assaulted her, despite her pleas to stop.
The girl later gave birth to a baby boy.
Police obtained DNA evidence and said results were 99.99% probable that Petty fathered the baby.
