David Richard Wilson, 33, was found
guilty of the sexual assault of a child in 2005 and
sentenced to four years in prison. Six years later,
Wilson was back in a Texas courtroom, accused in
two new cases that, if proven, may have lifelong
consequences for two more children.
Wilson is charged with super aggravated sexual
assault of a child. The enhanced charge is because
of the age of the alleged victim. She was only 23
months old at the time. We have also been told that
the child is Wilson’s niece.
A court document states that the alleged assault
occurred last year. The toddler’s parents are said
to have lived out of state, had drug problems, and
sent their daughter to live with family in Houston.
The child is the daughter of Wilson’s sister.
Last November, the toddler was taken to a doctor,
where she was diagnosed with HIV, genital herpes
and chlamydia. Reconstructive surgery was
performed because of infection to her private parts.
A doctor told investigators that she had to have
been sexually abused because of the sexually
transmitted diseases that were detected.
Four people in the home where the child lived were
tested. Only one, the affidavit states, tested positive
for HIV. It was David R Wilson. It’s unclear why
Wilson was not arrested at the time.
Last month, a 14-year-old girl spoke to the
Children’s Assessment Center, telling a caseworker
she had been having sex with a man for two years.
She identified the man as David R Wilson and said
she was pregnant. An exam of the girl showed that
she was HIV positive, had herpes and chlamydia.
Wilson was arrested, and is now being held without
bond in the Harris County Jail. His first court
appearance is expected to be Friday.
