A Central Texas man in prison for not registering as a sex offender must serve 80 more years for trying to hire a hit man to kill the judge in his case.
William Ray Phillips was sentenced Thursday in Waco.
A McLennan County jury on Wednesday convicted the 64-year-old Waco man of solicitation of capital murder.
Judge Matt Johnson wasn't injured in the plot that prosecutors say involved Phillips offering $30,000 to have the jurist killed. Another inmate tipped off authorities, leading to an undercover agent pretending to be a hit man.
Johnson in 2013 sentenced Phillips to 10 years for failing to register after being convicted as a sex offender. Some of the inmate's prior sexual abuse convictions were overturned on appeal.
