Child molester, who confessed to FOX 26 Investigates, sentenced

Posted: Updated:

No one would ever mistake me for a priest. But that didn't stop 67-year-old Kenneth Flowers from confessing his sins to a camera and a microphone.

"You know what you're charged with, correct?" FOX 26 Investigates asked Flowers.

"Some kind of sexual assault," replied Flowers.

"Yeah, sexually assaulting a child, children. Did you do that," asked FOX 26 Investigates.

"I did," said Flowers.

"Why did you do that?," asked FOX 26 Investigates.

"I don't know," replied Flowers.

"I really trusted the family that's why I let my kids go there," said the mother of Flowers' 3 victims, a 9-year-old boy, a 7-year-old girl and a 5-year-old girl.

"He tied my son up to a bed and did things to him," said the mother. "He had them do things to each other, he tried to get them to have intercourse but it didn't work thank God."

"These kids looked up to you like a grandfather," said FOX 26 Investigates to Flowers.

"They did, they did," replied Flowers. "I have kids myself and I don't know why I honestly don't know why I did it."

Flowers shocking confession became even more troubling when he had to stop and think after being asked how many kids had he molested.

"I'm trying to remember if there's anymore or not," Flowers said. "I can't think of any right now."

"The way his set up was I'm just amazed that more children hadn't come out and said that he had molested them," said Waller County Assistant District Attorney Laurie Sellers.

Flowers pleaded guilty this week to multiple charges of aggravated sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child.

FOX 26 Investigates asked the prosecutor if she thought Flowers confession to us played a part in his guilty plea.

"I was very much appreciative that he had the opportunity to speak to you and that he did admit to his offenses, " said Sellers. "I think that played a large part in his decision to plead guilty.

The guilty plea meant the kids did not have to testify in court and made Sellers job a little easier.

"Yes it did," said Sellers. "Thank you."

We're not expecting a thank you from Kenneth Flowers anytime soon.

The judge sentenced him to 25 years in prison.
