Abilene Man Convicted for Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child

ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - An Abilene man has been found guilty of sexually assaulting a child for weeks in 2016. 

Marcus Henslee, 26, was convicted on one count of Continuous Sexual Assault of a Child Wednesday afternoon. Court will reconvene for his sentencing Thursday morning. 

Court documents say Sheriff's deputies responded to Hendrick Medical Center on March 20, 2016 after a mother contacted them, saying her child had texted her, accusing Henslee of sexual assault.

The mother told police she confronted Henslee which caused him to grab a gun and threaten to kill himself. The mother said he then "called himself a monster and apologized to her," according to the documents which say Henslee admitted to sexually assaulting the victim.

The victim came forward with more serious allegations of sexual assault against Henslee during her interview with the deputies, court documents reveal.

The documents state the victim claims the sexual assault was ongoing for about five weeks.
