HOUSTON In 1986 in Smith County, Texas, Munson broke into a house and forced a nine-year-old boy to perform oral sex, officials say. He also broke into another house and forced an eight-year-girl to perform oral sex by holding a knife to her throat. In 1987, Munson was sentenced to 50 years in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice for burglary of a habitation with intent to commit aggravated sexual assault.
