A cross dressing child molestor has been sentenced to life in prison Tuesday.

Dominique Debose, 21,  of Tyler, pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault of a child for convincing a 13 year old boy to have sex with him while he was dressed up as a woman back in May.

He was sentenced by Judge Jack Skeen Jr. That's the maximum punishment allowed for the charges.

The victim apparently met Debose in an online chatroom. Debose had said that the boy said he was of age, and the sex was consensual.
