A 65-year-old man was charged with two serious sexual assaults on a child and a charge of indecency with a child for crimes reportedly committed in Port Arthur.
Kirk Douglas Jones of Beaumont was indicted this week by a Jefferson County grand jury on charges of two female victims.
According to the probable cause affidavit, the first victim, who was under 6 years of age, spoke to a forensic interviewer and said Jones touched her in multiple places and “it hurt.”
The alleged incidents occurred on or about April 25, 2020 and April 26, 2020 in Jones’ truck and apartment, the document says.
The indictment and indecency with a child relate to a female victim under the age of 17 that took place at Jones’ home on April 2, 2020, according to Port Arthur Police. The child, who was under 7 at the time, was seen at Child Abuse Forensic Services for a sexual assault investigation and interviewed at Garth House.
She reportedly told officials that she had been inappropriately touched.
Jones was arrested on March 1, 2021 for two serious sexual assaults on a child, each charge with $ 250,000 bail and a child indecency charge with $ 250,000 bail. He stayed in the county jail from Friday.
An indictment is not a final conviction of guilt; It is only a decision of the grand jury that allows the prosecutor to initiate criminal proceedings.
