Kung Fu Instructor Sentenced


A Dallas-area kung fu instructor who sexually assaulted one of his female students in 2004 has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

 According to Collin County prosecutors, 48-year-old Ricky Earl Anderson of Frisco was sentenced Friday by a jury after his conviction on charges of indecency with a child and sexual assault of a child. Anderson will have to register as a sex offender for life and was placed on 10 years’ probation. Prosecutors say Anderson assaulted the 15-year-old girl at his apartment in the Dallas suburb of Richardson. According to authorities, the girl reported the assault to Garland police three years later. Anderson had lived or taught kung fu in several Dallas-area cities and Las Vegas in recent years.
