A Houston man was sentenced to 20 years in prison after admitting to repeatedly raping a nine-year-old boy he was babysitting, Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg announced Wednesday.

 

“Children are the most vulnerable people in our society and when an adult victimizes them, it can mean life-long trauma,” Ogg said. “That’s why our most important work is to seek justice in cases like this and help the victim get closure and begin to heal.”

 

Jesus Andrade Lizama, 53, sexually assaulted the nine-year-old victim five Saturdays in a row at the victim’s home while he was babysitting, according to court records. During one episode, Lizama dragged the boy from his bedroom and covered his mouth when he tried to scream for help, court records show. Lizama also told the boy that if he would kill the boy or his sibling if he told anyone about the abuse.

 

Lizama pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault of a child on Tuesday and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

 

Assistant District Attorney Edward Appelbaum, who is assigned to the Crimes Against Children Division and prosecuted the case, said the repeated attacks were the ultimate betrayal.

 

“The victim’s parents entrusted him to take care of their child and he violated that trust,” Appelbaum said. “It’s a sickening and heinous crime, and it is absolutely heartbreaking for the victim and the family.”

 

Lizama’s guilty plea guaranteed he would be a convicted and the victim would be spared from having wounds re-opened during a trial.   

 

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office investigated the case, which was reported after the boy told his parents what had occurred.
