LONGVIEW (KYTX) - A 22-year-old Longview man is back in the Gregg County Jail today, this time on $500,000 bond.
Brandon Wayne Hitt is charged with sexual assault of a child in Gregg County, and in Smith County. His bond for the Smith County charge was set at $400,000, while a Gregg County justice of the peace set Hitt's bond at $100,000 on the local charge.
According to a complaint filed in the Gregg County District Clerk's Office, Hitt is accused of having sexual relations with a 15-year-old girl, who became pregnant, in 2012. The girl told authorities that she had sex and smoked marijuana with Hitt at his home.
Hitt has been in the Gregg County Jail seven times since the age of 17. In February 2009, Gregg County sheriff's deputies arrested Hitt for sexual assault. He was never indicted on that charge.
