CONROE, Texas – a Texas man was sentenced to four consecutive life sentences after being convicted of filming the rape of a 3-month-old child.
David Vincent Akins was convicted last week of four counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child. The 38-year-old opted to let the judge, instead of a jury, rendering his sentence.
Akins was arrested in 2016 after his previous landlord reported finding child pornography on his computer. The researchers determined Akins made images and videos of sexual acts with a child between 1 and 3 months old.
Several other victims testified that Akins had been raped or abused when they were as young as 3.
The court sentenced Akins to four life sentences to run consecutively and without the eligibility of parole.
