TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - A Mineola man has pleaded guilty to charges related to a 2015 incident at Sky Ranch.

Caylon Whittington pleaded guilty in Judge Skeen’s court on Monday to burglary of a habitation with intent to commit a felony, accepting a 15-year prison sentence.

The Smith County Sheriff’s Office reported March 8, 2015 deputies responded to a sexual assault at Sky Ranch Camp near Van. At that time a man was seen by a female chaperone before he fled the scene on foot, according to the sheriff’s office.

According to a previous report, a child woke up to find a man lying beside her in her bed at the Christian camp.

Whittington was arrested after a DNA test linked him to the scene.
