EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - An East Texas man was sentenced to fifty years in prison for sexually assaulting a 12-year old girl.

Joshua Harold Golmon was convicted last month of aggravated sexual assault. He reportedly forced the victim into his truck while she was walking to a friend's house last year and took her to a pasture where the assault happened.

Investigators said that had Golmon not dropped his cell phone at the crime scene, he may never have been caught.
