Blanco County man gets multiple life sentences
Blanco, Texas man Timothy Wade Foth, 39, will spend the rest of his days behind bars after a jury sentenced him to 3 life sentences for Aggravated Sexual Assault, plus 99 years for Aggravated Kidnapping and another 50 years and a $10,000 fine for Aggravated Robbery.
On the afternoon of August 16, 2016, Blanco County Sherriff’s Deputies responded to the report of an assault that had occurred that day. Upon arrival, deputies discovered an adult female who reported that she had just been released after having been held against her will while being sexually assaulted over several hours.
The victim told deputies that she had been invited into Foth’s residence for some water. Once inside, Foth struck her with an object then began choking her until she passed out. When she awoke she discovered that she had been bound first by duct tape and then later by electrical cords. While bound she was repeatedly sexually assaulted by Foth. During the assaults, Foth took money from her purse and jewelry that she was wearing.
After an investigation by the Blanco County Sheriff’s Department, evidence of the crime was recovered including items used to bind the victim during the assault. Analyst with the Texas Department of Public Safety Crime Laboratory in Austin, Texas also discovered DNA linking Foth to the crime.
After the trial, prosecuted by the 33rd & 424thJudicial District Attorney’s Office, the Blanco jury returned a guilty verdict along with the prison sentences.
33rd District Judge Allan Garrett ordered that one of the life sentences be served after the 50 year sentence is completed followed by a life sentence after that. The rest of the sentences would be served with the last life sentence.
District Attorney Sonny McAfee said, “I am extremely pleased with the verdict rendered by the jury, and Judge Garrett’s stacking order which requires the defendant to serve sentences one after another. There is no greater sense of justice than stopping a dangerous sexual predator like this one, and it was a great cooperative effort between law enforcement at various levels to obtain this justice. I am very proud of my First Assistant District Attorney, Perry Thomas, and Assistant District Attorney Erin Toolan. I think Perry did a terrific job with Erin’s help in getting the facts to the jury in a fashion that truly aided the jury’s decision. Through these sentences, this predator should never see the light of day outside of prison.”
