Amarillo, TX - An Amarillo man is sentenced to fifty years in prison for aggravated sexual assault of a child.

This comes after a jury found the man guilty on two counts on Wednesday. 

The 47th District Attorney says Ty Tuckness sexually assaulted a thirteen year old girl last year.

The girl reportedly told a school counselor about the assault, which led to Tuckness' arrest.
