Hays County Criminal District Attorney Kelly Higgins announced today that on Monday, May 15, 23-year-old Cameron Clement entered a guilty plea and was sentenced to 35 years in prison by District Judge Tanner Neidhardt for the offense of Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child.
A conviction of that charge does not permit release on parole, meaning Clement will serve every day of his 35-year sentence. The charge Clement was convicted of included four victims ranging in age from three to 14 at the time of the abuse.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant Criminal District Attorneys Cassidy Story and Allison Buess.
Story said, “It took extreme bravery for these children to come forward and seek justice for the defendant’s actions. Although this resolution cannot change what happened, we hope it brings closure to the victims and their families.”
Higgins said, “The District Attorney’s Office remains steadfast in our commitment to hold perpetrators accountable and to provide justice for survivors of sexual abuse.”
