Brownwood man sentenced to 25 years for sexually assaulting young girls

Blake Whitehead

A Brownwood man will serve a quarter of a century in prison after he plead guilty to sexually assaulting two girls under the age of 16.

Blake Whitehead, 30, was sentenced Tuesday to 25 years in prison for two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child and two counts of indecency of a child, according to Brown County Court-at-Law Judge Sam Moss's office.

Whitehead’s bench trial was scheduled to begin Tuesday morning after he filed documents waiving his right to a trial by jury.

Moss's office said Whitehead instead chose to plead guilty before the court proceedings even began.

On top of having to serve 25 years in state prison for committing child sex crimes, Whitehead will be listed as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
