Former priest sentenced to 30 years in teen's sex assault

John Fiala previously convicted in murder-for-hire case

SAN ANTONIO - A former Catholic priest convicted in a murder-for-hire case in North Texas has entered a guilty plea for the aggravated sexual assault of a 16-year-old boy.

John Fiala was sentenced Tuesday to 30 years in prison -- on top of the 60 years he was already serving for solicitation of capital murder.

The 56-year-old was a priest at a church in Rocksprings in 2008 when the boy accused him of molesting him.

Fiala later tried to hire a hit man to kill the boy.

That hit man turned out to be an undercover law enforcement officer.
