FORT BEND COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE SECURES TWENTY-YEAR SENTENCES IN AGGRAVATED SEXUAL ASSAULT OF A CHILD CASES
District Court Judge Maggie Perez Jaramillo sentenced Calvin Ray Alley, a 43-year old Sugar Land resident, to two 20-year prison terms on August 30, 2019. Alley previously plead guilty to two counts of Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child and requested that the court assess 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,” added prosecutor Jenna Rudoff.
District Attorney Brian Middleton emphasized that “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.”
Alley was prosecuted in the 400th District Court by Assistant District Attorneys Melissa Munoz and Jenna Rudoff. Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child is a First Degree Felony punishable by 5 to 99 years or life in prison and up to a $10,000 fine. Alley was probation eligible.
