Victor Lopez, 36, of Plano, was sentenced by a jury to 40 years in prison for Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child according to the Collin County DA’s office.

Evidence showed that Lopez sexually abused a 12-year-old female relative on at least three occasions while her mother was at work.  

The victim confided in a friend at school who encouraged her to tell someone.  The victim then went home and told her mother about the abuse. Her mother called Plano Police and Detective Kristina McClain investigated. A trained forensic interviewer interviewed the victim at the Children’s Advocacy Center. The victim then underwent a medical exam at the REACH clinic (Referral and Evaluation of At Risk Children), which performs medical evaluations for the diagnosis and treatment of child abuse.

The jury returned a guilty verdict on Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child on Wednesday and assessed Lopez’ punishment at 40 years in prison.
