TYLER, TX (KLTV) - A Tyler sports reporter was sentenced to 12 years in prison after he was convicted of sexual assault of a child.

Harold Lamonte Wilson, 36, was working for the Tyler Morning Telegraph when he turned himself in to authorities in June 2013 after police said Wilson had improper relations with a 16-year-old girl.

In court documents, the female told police she met Wilson at a John Tyler High School football game. She said the two also attend the same church.

According to his arrest affidavit, Wilson began giving the girl rides home from the games in September 2012. In the arrest affidavit, the female reported that Wilson would stop at local parks where the two had sexual relations.

She stated she stopped talking to Wilson around February of this year because she felt Wilson was becoming jealous; however, their relationship resumed a month later.

The affidavit states that an elder at their church learned of the relationship, which both Wilson and the girl admitted to.

The affidavit said the female told a church friend about her relationship with Wilson. The affidavit states that friend told an elder at the church who confronted both the female and Wilson.

The elder told police that both admitted to the sexual relationship. The affidavit states that Wilson texted the female asking, "Have u told anyone at the [at the church] about us? Honestly? I think I'm in trouble. If you did say something like I'm thinking u did, don't EVER talk to me or text me Ever again!"

He reportedly went on to text, "This is going to turn my world upside down."

Sexual assault of a child is a second degree felony.
