A 52-year-old man has been sentenced to life in prison after he was found guilty of continuous sexual assault of a child, officials said.

According to the Brazos County District Attorney's Office, Rayford Smith, who was sentenced Friday, is not eligible for parole.

In September 2012, a girl under the age of 14 told her family that Smith, whom her family knew, had been having sexual relations with her over the period of a year, officials said. At the urging of the girl's grandmother, she was taken to the Cameron Police Department to report the sexual assault. During the report, Cameron police learned that Smith continued to sexually assault the child after she moved to College Station. College Station police searched the apartment where the girl lived and found DNA evidence where she reported that a sexual assault had occurred, a press release from the district attorney's office stated.
