SULPHUR SPRINGS (KYTX) - A Hopkins County man was sentenced to life in prison Thursday after a jury found him guilty of indecency with a child.

51-year-old Charles Curtis Reichle was convicted of the charge stemming from an incident that occurred in July of 2013 with a child less than six years old.

Reichle received the maximum sentence punishable by law based on prior convictions for the same offense.

Following the sentence, Hopkins County District Attorney Will Ramsey told myssnews.com "the jury has ensured that no other child would ever be harmed by Curtis Reichle. This is a man who has been manipulating and sexually abusing children for years."
