GREGG CO. (KYTX) - A 52-year-old Mount Pleasant man has been transferred to the Gregg County Jail to face charges of indecency with a child.
Diego Mena was transported from the Titus County Jail to Gregg County Thursday afternoon. He's being held on $75,000 bond.
According to an arrest warrant signed Wednesday by 124th District Judge Alfonso Charles, Mena rented a room at the Globe Inn in the 1300 block of E. Marshall Ave.
On Friday, June 20, Mena is accused of being with a 14-year-old Mount Pleasant girl, and making sexual advances with her in the hotel room while her mother was having surgery in a local hospital.
The girl told investigators, she stepped outside of the room, and refused to return inside until Mena eventually came out and they left the motel.
