A 43-year-old Sugar Land man who pleaded guilty to raping a 12-year-old girl two years ago has been sentenced to two 20-year prison sentences.
District Court Judge Maggie Perez Jaramillo sentenced Calvin Ray Alley, after he pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child. Alley waived his right to have a jury sentence him 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 girl in Sugar Land in 2017, according to District Attorney Brian Middleton’s office. The child disclosed the sexual abuse to a relative, who subsequently contacted the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office, prosecutors said.
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, prosecutors said.
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.
“This defendant gained this child’s trust,” said lead prosecutor Melissa Muñoz. “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.”
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.”
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. Jenna Rudoff helped prosecute Alley.
