Cullins Sentenced to 20 Years for Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child, LIVINGSTON, February 21, 2008 - Shortly after 6 pm on February 21, 2008, Larry Charles Cullins, 32, of Goodrich, was sentenced to 20 years confinement in Texas Department of Criminal Justice, by a grand jury in the 258th District Court. Cullins was found guilty of aggravated sexual assault of a child. Cullins stood quietly and seemingly emotionless as Judge Elizabeth Coker read the verdict. The child, whose name will not be disclosed, was 13 when the sexual assault took place. According to Polk County District Attorney, Lee Hon, Cullins developed an interest in the girl after she broke up with a boyfriend back in 2006. During the days after the breakup, Cullins allegedly began making verbal advances, followed by improper touching, and eventually sexual intercourse. The victim came forward out of concern that she might be pregnant.
Cullins' defense attorney, Anthony Green, stated to PolkCountyToday.com that he "...plans on appealing the verdict on several different factual grounds". Green is a defense attorney with offices both in Houston and in Fort Worth.
