A former Galveston County Sheriff’s Office deputy has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for soliciting sex from a teenage girl.

Ruben Noel Ornelas, 35, pleaded guilty in January to indecency with a child by contact and online solicitation of a minor.

Judge Patricia Grady sentenced Ornelas after a sentencing hearing.

Texas City police arrested Ornelas in November 2016 in Dickinson.

Ornelas was accused of sending lewd text messages and photographs to a 14-year-old girl. The girl told detectives Ornelas forced her to perform sex acts twice.

The former deputy was fired from the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office in 2015 after a grand jury indicted him for engaging in sexual conduct with a county jail inmate.

Ornelas will be eligible for parole after serving half of his sentence and will be required to register as a sex offender for life.
