Emotional Testimony In Cuello Sentencing

A former Tyler catholic priest convicted of sexual assault will likely know his fate Wednesday. Gustavo Cuello was convicted of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl over a six to eight month period beginning in 1996. On October 10th, the former priest rejected a 50 year prison sentence handed down by Judge Cynthia Kent, opting instead for a jury. The victim, along with members of the victims family testified today. Closing arguments will begin tomorrow morning, then the jury is expected to make its decision.
