Midland man sentenced to 17 years behind bars

MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - A Midland man was sentenced to 17 years behind bars after being found guilty of aggravated sexual assault of a child.

A jury found Kenneth Conger, 46, guilty on Thursday.

Part of the agreement required conger to waive his right to appeal.

Evidence showed that back in the summer of 2013, Conger abused an 11-year-old girl.

The girl originally told members of her household but no report was filed.

The crime was finally investigated more than a year later when she told another relative.

Conger pled guilty to another child sex abuse case back in 1990.
