Former postal worker gets life sentence for indecency with child

July 12, 2023


A Wichita County Jury on Wednesday sentenced a former Wichita Falls postal worker and Sunday School teacher to life in prison for urging a 13-year-old girl to give him a “peep show” and take a shower with him.

Daniel James Green, 63, pleaded guilty in 78th District Court Tuesday to Sexual Performance by a Child, a charge that stemmed from an incident in January 2022. His punishment was left to a jury of seven women and five men.

After Green was charged with the offense in 2023, two other women came forward and told authorities Green did similar things to them nearly 20 years ago. The jury was authorized to take those allegations into consideration as they deliberated Green’s sentence.

In the most recent allegation, a girl told investigators Green was a next-door neighbor to her family and attended their church, Church at Sheppard/First Baptist. She said Green, who taught Sunday School, befriended the family and in 2022 he paid her $10 to put on a pair of panties at his home and give him a peep show. She said he also offered her money to take a shower with him.
