Ex-Lockney cop pleads guilty to sex crime

By Tiffany Pelt - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A former Lockney police officer is now in Brownfield Jail Wednesday night after pleading guilty to a sex crime. The Floyd County jury gave 23-year-old Brandon Welty seven years in prison for sexually assaulting a 16-year old family member from New York.

The Floyd County District Attorney says the girl had been performing a sex act on Welty from August to December. During that time Welty had moved from Terry County to Lockney in Floyd County.

The sexual assault occured in both counties, so now Welty is awaiting trail in Brownfield. There Welty is indicted on two counts of sexual assault on the same girl.

The Terry County District Attorney says that if Welty is convicted there, he could face 2-20 years for these second degree felonies.

The DA also said it was too early to tell, but if found guilty one of two things could happen. Welty's sentences in both counties could be served at the same time, or Welty would have to serve each sentence separately.
