Man found guilty of aggravated sexual assault of a child, faces life in prison

GALVESTON COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) -- A man has been found guilty of sexually assaulting a child since 2017, according to the district attorney.

A Galveston County jury found Eddy Paul Ginn Sr. to be guilty of two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child younger than 14 years of age.

According to the victim's testimony, the abuse would happen when Ginn would watch and care for her while her mother would work multiple jobs.

The victim testified that she frequently spent the night at Ginn's home, where they would sleep together in an extra bedroom. She described a specific comforter being on the bed during most of the assaults, and various pornographic materials were shown to her by Ginn.

Thursday afternoon, the jury returned verdicts from Monday's trial of guilty on two charges and not guilty on the third charge.

Ginn will be sentenced by the court at a later date and faces punishment of between 5 years to 99 years in prison.
