A Brownsville Man who pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a child for nine years, will spend the next 25 years in prison. 37 year old Abel Layton pleaded guilty yesterday for continuous sexual abuse of a child.

Layton was arrested on October 2013 but began abusing the victim since she was 5 years old and continued until she was 14. The Cameron County child abuse unit was successful in obtaining Layton’s conviction.

The district attorney’s office in Cameron County says the child abuse unit continues to secure convictions against individuals who commit horrendous crimes against children. Since it was created in July 2013, the unit has put away 34 child sex offenders.

Layton is not eligible for early release.
