View Comments ()




    A South Texas man convicted on 88 counts of molesting children has been sentenced to life in prison.

    A jury in San Antonio on Monday sentenced 60-year-old David Wayne Loven.

    Jurors earlier convicted Loven of multiple counts of super-aggravated sexual assault of a child, sexual performance of a child, indecency with a child and sexual performance of a child.

    Prosecutors say Loven would sexually abuse the children and also photograph and videotape the molested youngsters.

    Investigators recovered more than 25,000 suggestive images and videos from Loven's home when he was arrested last year.
