David R. Wilson, 33, was already a convicted sex felon when he was left with custody of his nieces, 3 and 14-years-old respectively. What he did to them shocked Texas social workers, and disgusted the judge so much that Wilson was given life in prison for his actions.
Wilson had apparently been molesting and raping both of the children while they were in his custody. He was their uncle. Their parents were habitual drug users and lost custody of the children. Despite being a sex offender, authorities still gave Wilson free reign with the children.
The 3-year-old had such horrible injuries after her rape, that she needed reconstructive surgery. It was the 14-year-old that finally broke down and told a trusted adult, who then contacted the authorities.
The part of the story that sealed his fate? Wilson knew he had HIV, and passed it to both of the children.

He had previously spent four years in jail for sexual assault when he took in his young niece because her parents were habitual drug users.
In November 2014, medical officials discovered the child had genital injuries that required reconstructive surgery.
Upon conducting tests on all four people who lived in the child’s household, it was clear who was the suspect: her uncle, who also had STDs.
Although he had chlamydia and a relevant criminal history, authorities did not arrest him.
Around the same time, a 14-year-old girl informed authorities Wilson had sexually assaulted her. She tested positive for several STDs and was also pregnant.
The victim was sexually assaulted inside Wilson’s pickup truck, the statement by the Houston Police Department says. The victim also told police she was sexually assaulted by Wilson on several other occasions.
“Wilson admitted to investigators he sexually assaulted the victim numerous times over the past couple of years and also had intimate relations with several unidentified females,” the report added.
Wilson was charged with “super aggravated sexual assault” — an enhanced charge because of the age of the younger victim, his niece.
The jury took an hour to find Wilson guilty. He was sentenced to life in prison.
“It’s a monster that does this kind of crime, this guy doesn’t deserve one minute less than the maximum punishment,” said legal analyst Joel Androphy.
