Midland Man Sentenced in Sexual Assault Case


A Midland man has been sentenced to 25-years in prison on two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child, according to a release from the Midland County District Attorney’s Office. 

Alan Otwell was found guilty on both charges this week and sentenced Thursday. 

Otwell was accused of sexually assaulting a girl “numerous” times for “several” years and threatened the victim if she said anything about the assault, according to the release. 

The sentences will run concurrently and Otwell will not be eligible to be considered for parole until at lease half of his time had been served, according to the release. 

The case was prosecuted by Midland County first assistant DA Tim Flathers and Kara Latiolais. 

Judge Elizabeth Leonard presided over the trial.
