A life sentence for a Monahans man for kidnapping and sexually assaulting a child.

On Wednesday, a jury found 41-year-old James Randall Downs guilty of the crimes.

Deputies received a call about a missing child in February of last year.

Police were able to track down Downs and the child; just minutes after investigators say the attack took place.

Downs won't be eligible for parole for 30 years.
