Child Molester Sentenced to 60 Years in Prison Without Parole

A 50-year-old Houston man was sentenced to 60 years in prison without parole for repeatedly molesting two girls over several months beginning in 2020, Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg announced.

“Our children are our most vulnerable victims,” Ogg said. “And it is vitally important that we go to trial on cases like this so that the young girls who were abused get justice.”

Daniel A. Reyes-Gomez was convicted by a Harris County jury of continuous sexual assault of a child for abusing two girls who were 7 and 12 at the time. He opted to have his punishment determined by the judge, who handed down a 60-year sentence on Thursday.

Reyes-Gomez was prosecuted in a three-day trial by Assistant District Attorney Danielle Oxford, a chief in the DA’s Crimes Against Children Division, and ADA Rachel Barlow, who is assigned to the DA’s Trafficking/Exploitation Division.

Under the law in Texas, Reyes-Gomez must serve every day of the 60-year prison sentence and will not be eligible for parole.
