MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas - A Montgomery County juvenile court sentenced a 14-year-old boy Tuesday to probation until he's 18.
Investigators said the boy sexually assaulted a 4-year-old girl.
A county prosecutor said he had hoped the teen would get at least 10 years probation after the jury heard testimony from the victim, who is now 5 years old.
The state requested the boy be placed in the juvenile justice system, but the judge ruled he will be able to serve his punishment at home.
