Farmersville resident Henry Lee Fletcher, 79, has been arrested for the aggravated sexual assault of a child.
He was arrested June 28 and placed into the Collin County Detention Facility.
According to information found in the arrest warrant, a 14-year-old female was allegedly sexually assaulted by an older man.
Investigator Danny Stasik with the Child Advocacy Center is investigating the case.
In the arrest affidavit, allegedly the man pulled alongside the victim and asked her to get into the vehicle. Though she refused the first time, when asked to get into the vehicle a second time, she relented and got into the van type vehicle. The suspect then allegedly took the victim to his home where he sexually assaulted her.
According to the affidavit, the victim has a history of “bi-polar, severe delays and is intellectually challenged.”
In March 2014, Fletcher was found guilty of assault causing bodily injury family violence, a class A Misdemeanor, according to information provided by the Collin County Sheriff’s Office. He received 12 months probation along with 25 community service hours plus an anger management course.
A motion to reopen the case was made July 10.
Fletcher is currently being held in the Collin County Jail on a $100,000 bond for the First Degree Felony charge.
The case is still under investigation by the Child Advocacy Center of Collin County.
