San Antonio man sentenced to life in prison for child sex abuse

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — A San Antonio man will spend life in prison after he was convicted of sexually abusing two young girls for years.

46-year-old John Anthony Clede was sentenced on Tuesday following a four-day long trial where the two girls testified about the years of abuse they survived.

Clede was accused of abusing the girls from June 2015 to November 2018.

“Cases like this are a priority for the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office and our Family Violence Division. These brave children faced their abuser in court and now this defendant will not get the opportunity to victimize them or any other child. I allocated more resources to our Family Violence Division so that they can focus on seeking justice for our most vulnerable victims of crime and this case is just the latest example of the hard work of our entire team,” said District Attorney Joe Gonzales.

Clede was sentenced to life in prison for the charge of continuous sexual abuse of a child charge and 40 years in prison for the charges of aggravated sexual assault of a child. He is not eligible for parole.
