TYLER, TX (KLTV) - A man convicted of sexually assaulting a child was sentenced in a Tyler court Friday.

34-year-old Dujuan Bureau was sentenced to life without parole after being found guilty on charges of ongoing sexual abuse of a child, his own daughter.

Bureau was arrested in February on a charge of continuous sexual assault of a child under 14.

Richard Vance, representing the State, said Bureau is a "cold-blooded pedophile" who "should never see the light of day".

Vance also said, " He is that little girl's father. He is the one she is supposed to trust, be encouraged by and believe in. He takes advantage of the greatest bond to do the worst thing you can possibly do to a human being, but to a child."

"It's fitting that this sentencing comes after Halloween because Halloween is about haunted houses, monsters and scary things. And that little girl lived in a true house of terror with this monster with an insatiable appetite to molest children," said Vance.

Bureau has 30 days to appeal the jury's guilty verdict.
