Camp Counselor Receives 20 Years


Matthew Allen McMurray was sentenced Friday to 20 years in prison for sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl while they were counselors at a Lindale camp last summer.

McMurray, 21, pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child/sexual contact. He was sentenced to 20 years on each charge by 7th District Judge Kerry Russell. The defendant, who had no prior criminal history, will serve the sentences at the same time, and will be eligible for parole after 10 years and will have to register as a sex offender.

The victim's mother testified Friday that her daughter, who was 13 at the time of the incidents on Aug. 8 and 10 of 2006, was always outgoing and showed an interest in helping others, so she wanted to volunteer at the Timberline Baptist Camp for mentally disabled adults.

From 2006
