GILMER, Texas (AP) - Prosecutors say a 22-year-old East Texas baby sitter sentenced to life in prison for molesting two boys gave the victims prizes to stay quiet about the sex abuse.

Tylor Lynn Charette of Bettie pleaded guilty Friday to two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a minor. Prosecutors in Upshur County say Charette was then sentenced, by a judge, to life in prison plus 30 years.

Investigators say Charette knew the family and would often watch the elementary-age boys. Authorities say the children, on several occasions, were assaulted in a shed behind the home. The victims finally told a relative.

Authorities did not say what prizes the boys received from Charette, who was arrested last August.

District Attorney Billy Byrd says Charette’s sentence is final and he’s agreed not to appeal.
