HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A Houston man who worked as a nanny was sentenced to 30 years in prison for molesting children, the district attorney's office announced Wednesday.
Lee Smith III, 32, pleaded guilty to one count of sexual abuse of a child. He will never be eligible for parole, Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said.
The video above is from a 2018 report on Smith, who was wanted at the time.
"The law against the continuous sexual abuse of a child in Texas ensures this predator will spend every single day of his 30-year sentence in prison," Ogg said.
Smith, who sometimes went by the name Justin, was charged in 2019. The court found that Smith spent more than a year molesting the two sons of a single mother who hired him as a nanny.
Both boys were about the age of 9 at the time of the abuse, Ogg said in a release.
The boys reportedly told their mother what happened to them after Smith stopped working for the family. That's when their mother went to authorities.
In a 2018 report on Smith, police told ABC13 he was known to dress as a doctor and pose as a pediatrician. He would also sometimes pose as an older man, police said at the time.
