LUBBOCK -- The settlement of several civil suits against Stanley Marsh 3, which accused him of paying teenagers for sex, won't affect the criminal sexual assault case against the 74-year-old eccentric millionaire, a prosecutor said this week.

Marsh faces charges of sexual assault and sexual performance by a child. The charges involve two boys, 15 and 16. The offenses occurred in 2010, authorities said. The civil suits involved 10 teens.

Special prosecutor Matt Powell said he plans to present the criminal case to a grand jury next month.

Marsh is free on $300,000 bail.
