Robert McGaugh

I wrote about this guy two years ago.


I wrote about how Robert McGaugh drove from Guthrie, Oklahoma to Stephenville for the purpose of having sex with a then 16-year-old high school girl he met online.

When the girl’s father suspected something was amiss, he contacted Stephenville police and McGaugh was arrested at a local motel.


Since then, McGaugh has been sitting in the Erath County Jail awaiting his fate, and on Wednesday, he began to learn what his future might look like.

After a three-day trial that began on Monday, an Erath County jury found McGaugh guilty of three counts of sexual assault of a child.


District Attorney Alan Nash would not comment on the verdict until after sentencing, which will begin Thursday.
