Hamilton County deputies are beginning to see the end results of their sting operations targeting child predators.
Wednesday they saw 24 year old Anthony Robert Yrigoyen of Fort Worth sentenced to 15 years in prison as he appeared in 220th District Court.
It was back on February 9 that Yrigoyen traveled to Hico in northern Hamilton County to meet what he thought would be a 16-year-old girl for sex, but when he got there found law enforcement waiting for him.
During the course of their investigation, deputies learned that he was already a convicted sex offencer.
As they continue their operations targeting predators, deputies encourage parents to monitor who their children socialize with, not just in person but on line and through various aps.
