A 33-year-old Houston man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty in two separate assaults, announced Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg.


“This is a predator who has a pattern of attacking and hurting women when he is free to roam,” Ogg said. “He has been sentenced to spend the next two decades behind bars, where he can no longer harm or victimize women.”


Florian S. Kroll was sentenced Friday to 20 years in prison for sexually assaulting a woman on Jan. 16, 2020, in the elevator at H-E-B in the Heights. He will have to serve at least half of that sentence before he is eligible for parole. Since he pleaded guilty, he cannot appeal the conviction or the prison sentence.


He was also sentenced to 10 years in prison for attempted sexual assault of a child for attacking a 16-year-old girl as she walked home from school in north Houston about 1:20 p.m. on Jan. 15, 2020. The two prison sentences will run concurrently. The Houston Police Department investigated both incidents.


Assistant District Attorney Tiera Johnson-Williams, who prosecuted the cases, said the plea agreement was the right result.


“This guilty plea puts the defendant in prison for many years and spares the victims the trauma of having to come to court to testify about their ordeals,” Johnson-Williams said.


Kroll was convicted for indecent exposure with a child in an unrelated 2015 case and sentenced to two years in prison. At the time of his arrest in 2020, he had failed to register his address as a sex offender.
