HOUSTON -- David Richard Wilson, 33, was found guilty of the sexual assault of a child in 2005 and sentenced to four years in prison. Six years later, Wilson was back in court, accused in two new cases that, if proven, may have lifelong consequences for two more children.
Wilson is charged with super aggravated sexual assault of a child. The enhanced charge is because of the age of the alleged victim. She was only 23 months old at the time. We have also been told that the child is Wilson's niece.
A court document states that the alleged assault occurred last year. The toddler's parents are said to have lived out of state, had drug problems and sent their daughter to live with family in Houston. The child is the daughter of Wilson's sister.
Last November, the toddler was taken to a doctor, where she was diagnosed with HIV, genital herpes and chlamydia. Reconstructive surgery was performed because of infection to her private parts. A doctor told investigators that she had to have been sexually abused because of the sexually transmitted diseases that were detected.
Four people in the home where the child lived were tested. Only Wilson, the affidavit states, tested positive for HIV. It's unclear why Wilson was not arrested at the time.
Last month, a 14-year-old girl spoke to the Children's Assessment Center, telling a caseworker she had been having sex with a man for two years. She identified the man as Wilson and said she was pregnant. An exam of the girl showed that she was HIV positive, had herpes and chlamydia.
Wilson was arrested, and is now being held without bond in the Harris County Jail. His first court appearance is expected to be Friday.
