AUSTIN, Texas — A suspect in a series of Interstate 35 rock-throwing incidents in Central Texas has been sentenced to 99 years in prison after his conviction of sexual abuse in an unrelated case.
The Austin American-Statesman (http://atxne.ws/2d4afCb) reports a Travis County jury sentenced Patrick Eugene Johnson on Thursday after finding him guilty of aggravated sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child. Johnson, who is 60, won’t be eligible for parole for 30 years.
Authorities say Johnson, who was arrested in June, was charged with molesting a boy numerous times since 2012.
Johnson still faces multiple aggravated assault counts in a series of I-35 rock-throwing incidents in the Austin area.
Three motorists were injured, including a person who suffered brain damage after the rock crashed through his windshield in 2014.
