Longview teen jailed on second child sex charge in eight months

Posted: Updated:

LONGVIEW/GREGG COUNTY (KYTX) - A Longview teenager is back in the Gregg County Jail on another child sex charge.

Gregg County Sheriff's deputies took 17-year-old Michael Stephen Thomas into custody Wednesday on an aggravated sexual assault of a child charge, after a girl younger than age 14 told investigators that, on or about Oct. 3, Thomas came to her home and coerced her to have sex. Thomas told investigators that he only kissed the girl but did not have sex with her, but the victim said a condom was used, according to court records.

It is not known if this is the same victim from a March 8 arrest of Thomas for indecency with a child. Thomas was out of jail on $5,000 bond at that time.

He remains in the Gregg County Jail today on $105,000 bond.
