Dallas Man Gets Life in Prison for Sexual Child Abuse, Claimed God Told Him To Do It

Christopher Caudill

Collin County District Attorney Greg Willis’s office secures a life with no parole sentence for child predator who claimed God told him to do it.

Christopher Caudill, 46, of Dallas, Texas, was an adult who had ongoing access to the child. In November of 2021, the then 18 year old victim out-cried to a family friend that Caudill had abused her repeatedly between the ages of 11 to 17. Victim said that during the abuse Caudill would justify it by saying “God told him to do it,” and “that’s what they did in the Bible.” The victim’s friend then contacted law enforcement to report the abuse.

Carrollton Police Department Detective Erika Honeycutt investigated the case and separately interviewed both the victim, who disclosed details of the abuse, and Caudill, who admitted to sexually assaulting the victim over a number of years. Caudill stated he abused the victim because they had a relationship that was “a love like they had in the Bible.”

The jury found Caudill guilty of Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child, a first degree felony carrying a punishment range of 25 years to life in prison. After finding Caudill guilty and considering the facts of the case, the jury assessed punishment at life in prison. By law, a sentence for Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child is without eligibility for parole.

After sentencing, District Attorney Greg Willis observed that: “It’s revolting that this horribly evil person not only inflicted such prolonged pain and evil on a child, but also had the twisted nerve to use God and the Bible to justify it. We are thankful the jury saw through his deceit and delivered justice.”
