Juvenile Sexual Assault

Jan 09, 2014

At approximately 6:25am this morning, Liberty County Deputy Joshua Leal responded to a call on CR 3312 in North Liberty County regarding the reported sexual assault of a five (5) year old female by a fifteen (15) year old male. Lead Investigator Sgt. Paul Lasco reported that two families with several relatives all live in the same home and it was reported that both the victim and the offender are cousins.

Sgt. Lasco said the 15 year old male was taken into custody and filed on for Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child while the 5 year old little girl was sent to Texas Children’s Hospital for examination.

The teen age boy was taken before County Judge Craig McNair at approximately 4:pm this evening for a Detention Hearing at which time Judge McNair ordered the detention of the 15 year old boy for a period of days in order to protect his well- being and rights as well as the safety and well- being of others. It will also afford the Sheriff’s Department sufficient time to complete the investigation.
