For urinating on the Alamo in 1982, metal music madman Ozzy Osbourne was banned from performing in San Antonio for two decades.
For having sex with a 14-year-old San Antonio girl in one of the Alamos bathrooms, Charles Wayne Carmony, 43,of Kentucky found out Friday that he will spend the rest of his life in prison.
Carmony, a convicted sex offender who was handed probation sentences for having sex with another 14-year-old girl there, apologized for lying to the San Antonio girl and her family while carrying on a relationship with her.
Over the course of at least three years, Carmony duped the San Antonio girl, now 17, into believing he was 19 years old. He was 40 at the time.
He gave her gifts, including a Harley Davidson motorcycle, and had sex with her in various places, including movie theaters around town and in the mens restroom at the Alamo. He also posted sexual images of her on an Internet chat room, bragging that he was in one image having sex with the girl.
He pleaded guilty to production of child pornography, and a count of traveling across state lines to have sex with a minor was dropped.
"Its like really destroyed my trust in men," the victim told U.S. District Judge Fred Biery. "I look at people differently. ... I fight with guys a lot. ... I dont want to be lied to."
"He led me to believe that he really loved me. Before he got arrested, we were trying for a baby," she added. "I really hope he stays in prison."
Biery rejected a call from Carmonys lawyer to give him 25 years. The judge instead agreed with prosecutor Tracy Braun that Carmony needed to be locked up for life so he wouldnt harm any more children.
The judge also ordered that Carmony serve a lifetime of federal supervision should he ever get out of prison. Life in federal prison means just that: Hell serve life, unless the sentence is overturned on appeal.
He’s from Kentucky. Maybe they were married.
Based on the headline alone, I thought “man, Texans are really serious about respecting the Alamo.”
Don’t screw around with the Alamo.
Not for nothing, but what was does Ozzy has to do with this sex offender clymer? Does every crime committed at the Alamo require a comparison with Ozzy’s crime?
Oh come on. How many 40 year olds could pass for 19?
Daddy always told me, "Fifteen will get you twenty. Fourteen will get you life."
Ah, underage girl. I was going to say...I know folks down there take the Alamo seriously, but even so a life sentence just for going at it in the toilets sounded a bit excessive.
ditto. misleading headline.

So he started working on this girl when she was 11?
Where is the parent who should have been pistol whipping this guy at every opportunity?
No, they’re really not or they would have given Ozzie Osborne a life sentence without the possibility of parole in solitary confinement just for looking so obnoxious.
sometimes 17 gets you death, like the 18 yr old last year, who spent 20 yrs in prison only to be killed as a pedo by other inmates.
I remember visiting the Alamo a few years back. It felt much more like being in a religious shrine than a battle site. Quite an odd sensation.
I'm 63 and I don't look a day over 62 & 1/2
I think he picked the wrong state to do it in. He would have gotten much less for raping a five-year-old in Massachusetts.
