Thomas Teczar, 72, (shown in this file photo) used to be a parish priest in Ranger, about 90 miles southwest of Fort Worth, and in other parishes in Eastland and Tarrant counties.
But in 2009, he was sentenced to 50 years in prison on sex charges.
Prison officials on Friday said no to his petition for early medical release.
Eastland County District Attorney Russ Thomason was happy about that.
“Just because Thomas Teczar is old and sick doesn’t mean he’s safe,” Thomason said. “This man has a 50-year history of injuring children.”
