UPSHUR COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

An Upshur County jury found 34-year-old Cory Martin Colvin, of Naples, guilty of aggravated sexual assault of a child. 

He was sentenced by the same jury to 99 years in prison, with eligibility for parole only after he serves at least 30 years in prison.

Evidence showed that while working as a prison guard at the Telford Unit in New Boston, he moved into a home outside of Gilmer in 2012 with a co-worker from the prison unit. It was there that Colvin began a grooming process and molested multiple girls under the age of 13 in 2013.

The jury was presided over by Judge Lauren Parish.
