The 24-year-old son of an Everman home day care operator has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for molesting a girl there for at least two years, according to court records.
A Tarrant County jury convicted and sentenced Chance William Moore last month on a charge of continuous sexual abuse of a child. Two other charges — indecency fondling and aggravated sexual assault — are pending.
Moore was arrested July 26, 2016, after the child told her parents what was happening and they contacted authorities.
“She decided to close permanently with no plans to reopen,” Marissa Gonzales, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Family and Protective Services, said in an email.
The girl, now 12, told investigators the day before Moore’s arrest that he had sexually abused her since she was 9. Detectives believe that two other children may have been molested as well, according to the arrest warrant affidavit, obtained by the Star-Telegram last year.
