HENDERSON COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - A 75 year-old Chandler man was sentenced by Judge Dan Moore of the 173rd Judicial District Court to 25 years in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice Tuesday after pleading guilty to sexual abuse of a child.  The investigation into Mr. Ingold began after the victim told school officials of the abuse.  The School contacted the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services who then contacted the Henderson County Sherriff's Office.  The case was assigned to crimes against children Investigator Ceresa Ballard.  After conducting a preliminary investigation, Ballard interviewed Ingold who admitted to her that he had committed the abuse.  Ballard then secured an arrest warrant for Ingold where he was placed into custody.

Assistant District Attorney and crimes against children Prosecutor Nancy Rumar prosecuted the case.  Henderson County District Attorney Scott McKee indicated that he was pleased with the combined efforts of the Texas Department of Family and Protective services and the Henderson County Sheriff's Office in putting Ingold behind bars where he belongs.
