MONTGOMERY CO. (KRLD) - Prosecutors in Montgomery County say a man sexually abused his girlfriend's three young daughters despite already being a sex offender.

Donald Payne pleaded guilty to indecency with a child, they say. 

In 1993, Payne went to prison in Florida for burglary of a dwelling and sexual battery. Because of this, his punishment range was enhanced to automatic life in prison with the possibility of parole after 35 years.

The case was investigated by Montgomery County Sheriff's Detective Trey Gordy and prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Wesley LeRouax. 

Gordy and LeRouax are assigned to the Special Victims Unit located at Conroe's child advocacy center, Children's Safe Harbor.

Children's Safe Harbor is a non-profit organization that provides a single location to house the various agencies involved in the investigation of child sexual or physical abuse.
