Officials say Amoles, 40, had access to the child because of a relationship with the child's family. The child was only five when the sexual abuse began. It was the next year when the child told a family friend, who was in town for the weekend, about the abuse. That adult immediately reported the abuse.

Detectives with the Wylie Police Department investigated the case. The child was forensically interviewed at the Children's Advocacy Center of Collin County and disclosed details about the sexual abuse.

After the jury found Amoles guilty they sentenced him to 50 years in prison without the possibility of parole.
