San Antonio Man Guilty In Honduras Sex Case With Girl, 13

HOUSTON — A South Texas man working for the Department of Defense in Honduras faces up to 30 years in prison for having sex with a 13-year-old girl.

William Curry McGrath of San Antonio remains jailed pending sentencing this summer in federal court in Houston. The 55-year-old McGrath on Tuesday pleaded guilty to engaging in illicit sexual conduct with a minor in a foreign place.

McGrath was a civilian employee with DOD, working as director of the Network Enterprise Center at Soto Cano Air Base in Comayagua, Honduras.

Investigators say McGrath, while in Honduras from late 2012 to March 2014, met the minor and began a sexual relationship with her. Prosecutors say the Texan gave the girl money, gifts and other items in exchange for sex.

McGrath was arrested last October.
