Atascosa Co. jury sentences Talamantez to 198 years

The 81st District Attorney’s office issued a statement that Rubin Talamantez, Jr. was convicted on two counts of Indecency with a Child and one count of Indecency with a Child by Exposure in their first jury trial since the pandemic.

Talamantez was convicted by an Atascosa County jury who sentenced Talamantez to 99 years on each count. The Honorable 218th District Judge Russell Wilson “stacked” those sentences, meaning the sentences run consecutively.

“I’m so proud of our victim for having the courage to outcry about the abuse,” said 81st District Attorney Audrey Louis. “A special thank you to the Children’s Alliance of South Texas, Pleasanton Police Department, my prosecution team, Asst. DAs Adriana Biggs, Leslie Carranza, Investigator Roland Trevino, and Victim Advocate Katie Quinney. We are grateful to the Atascosa County jurors, as their sentence ensures Mr. Talamantez will never have the opportunity to hurt another child.”
