Thirty minutes, that's all it took for an Odessa jury to put a man behind bars for life.

48-year-old Robert Rubalcado was found guilty on Thursday on a laundry list of charges.

Rubalcado was sentenced to life in prison on seven counts of aggravated sexual assault, indecency with a child and sexual assault.

He sexually abused the girl over a six year period, starting when she was only eleven years old.

Rubalcado will not be eligible for parole for 30 years.
