Man sentenced to life in prison for violently sexually assaulting 21-month-old girl
Child's mother charged injury to a child by omission
SAN ANTONIO – A man will be spending the rest of his life in prison for violently sexually assaulting a toddler.
Isaac Cardenas was sentenced today to life without parole Thursday.
He was convicted earlier this month on four counts of super aggravated sexual assault of a child.
Prosecutors said Cardenas abused his girlfriend's 21-month-old daughter, leaving her with injuries too graphic to describe.
Cardenas blamed it on a dog attack, but the evidence didn't add up.
His girlfriend, Crystal Herrera, was charged with injury to a child by omission.
