According to the Comal County Sheriff's Office, a man admitted to molesting an 11-year-old boy while high on meth.

On Tuesday, Christopher Snyder pleaded guilty to an aggravated sexual assault of a child charge. The 11-year-old courageously took the stand and testified against his abuser. When emotion overcame him and he could not get through describing the abuse, a video of his interview with the Children's Advocacy Center of Comal County was played for the jury. The video described the abuse he endured.

The detective in the case then testified and showed a video Snyder's confession. The 52-year-old admitted to abusing the child and admitted to being addicted to meth for the past 25 years.

"It's just another horrible thing I did while I was high. Another horrible thing I did to some young man," Snyder said.

Snyder was sentenced to 50 years in prison and handed a fine of $10,000.
