49-year-old Marcos Edward Barrios of Lubbock was on Thursday, December 12th to life in prison for continuous sexual abuse of a child.

KAMC News reports that two girls, ages 11 and 13, came forward back in 2017 with allegations that Barrios had touched them inappropriately.

According to a statement from the office of the Lubbock County Criminal District Attorney, deputies quickly began their investigation and collected sheets from the girl's bedroom. The sheets were later tested by the DPS Crime Laboratory  and Barrios' semen was present on the sheets.

Barrios is said to have denied the girls' allegations initially but eventually asked for a deal.
