Longview man accused of raping 7-year-old girl he babysat

Posted: Updated:

LONGVIEW (KYTX) - A Longview man already wanted for speeding in a school zone is in the Gregg County Jail on a more serious crime against children.

Darrell Dewayne Colbert, 44, is in jail on $200,000 bond, charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child. According to a complaint filed in Gregg County's 188th District Court, Colbert raped a 7-year-old girl he was babysitting two days before Christmas. The child reported the rape Dec. 23 when she was brought to Good Shepherd Medical Center in Longview.

Colbert has been in the Gregg County Jail nearly two dozen times since 1992. He is also being held on a capias warrant that stems from an unpaid ticket for speeding in a school zone in Gregg County.
