Man gets probation for sex crime

By Messenger Staff | Published Wednesday, June 11, 2014

A 71-year-old Rhome man has received probation after pleading guilty to indecency with a child.

Hollis Glenn Belcher entered a guilty plea in 271st District Court last month to indecency with a child/sexual contact in exchange for eight years deferred adjudication. Belcher must register as a sex offender for life due to the conviction.

Although investigators initially feared there might be several victims, the conviction was for only one victim, who was 9 years old at the time of the crime.

The crime took place at Belcher’s home in the Diamond Ridge subdivision in February of 2013, investigators said.
