A 38 year old man is facing life in prison after being convicted in a horrible case of child abuse that horrified the community, News Radio 1200 reports.
A jury found Dendre Dorch guilty of chaining a 3 year old and a 4 year old child to stakes in the back yard of a home in northeast Bexar County.
Inside the home were several other unsupervised children, all under the age of 12.
Dorch and his girlfriend told deputies they were watching the children for a friend who was in California looking for a job.
The girlfriend has pleaded guilty and was sentenced to fifty years. Dorch will face sentencing on Friday.
