Life sentence for sex in Alamo
San Antonio Express-News:
For urinating on the Alamo in 1982, metal music madman Ozzy Osbourne was banned from performing in San Antonio for two decades.Being a child sex predator probably had something to do with the sentence, but desecrating the Alamo is no small thing in San Antonio. It is a real hate crime.
For having sex with a 14-year-old San Antonio girl in one of the Alamo’s bathrooms, Charles Wayne Carmony, 43,of Kentucky found out Friday that he will spend the rest of his life in prison.
Carmony, a convicted sex offender who was handed probation sentences for having sex with another 14-year-old girl there, apologized for lying to the San Antonio girl and her family while carrying on a relationship with her.
Over the course of at least three years, Carmony duped the San Antonio girl, now 17, into believing he was 19 years old. He was 40 at the time.
He gave her gifts, including a Harley Davidson motorcycle, and had sex with her in various places, including movie theaters around town and in the men’s restroom at the Alamo. He also posted sexual images of her on an Internet chat room, bragging that he was in one image having sex with the girl.
He pleaded guilty to production of child pornography, and a count of traveling across state lines to have sex with a minor was dropped.
"It’s like really destroyed my trust in men," the victim told U.S. District Judge Fred Biery. "I look at people differently. ... I fight with guys a lot. ... I don’t want to be lied to."
