A man that sexually assaulted a teenage girl was sentenced to 55 years today.

On June 11, 2013 at 2:00 a.m., deputies and detectives with the Smith County Sheriff's Office were called to Farm to Market road 756 in reference to a suspect who had entered the residence and assaulted a 14-year-old girl.

Detectives followed leads in the case and information lead to Marcus Allen Edminston, 26, of Bullard.

Detectives were able to get enough evidence to get a warrant on Edminston for burglary of a habitation with intent to commit indecency with a child.

Edminston was arrested and the next day was placed into Smith County Jail on a $750,000 bond.

On November 20, 2013, the Smith County District Attorney's Office announced that Edminston had plead guilty to the charges and was sentenced to 55 years in prison.
