LUFKIN, Texas (KTRE) - An Angelina County Grand Jury handed down 54 indictments Tuesday, including one for a Diboll man accused of having two young children watch a pornographic movie, then having them imitate the acts performed in the movie.

Wesley Don Parish, 52, was arrested on a charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child on Sept. 10. The grand jury also indicted him on an additional charge of the same offense and a charge of indecency with a child.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Parish was babysitting a seven-year-old girl and a six-year-old boy. He had them watch a pornographic movie while their parents were away, then told the girl to perform oral sex on the boy and on Parish, according to the affidavit.

The children told a deputy with the Angelina County Sheriff's Office about the incident, then told an interviewer at the Angelina Alliance for Children.

Parish has been held in the Angelina County Jail on a bond of $100,000 since the Sept. 10 arrest.

Others indicted Tuesday include:

* Sherree James, 53, of Lufkin, for injury to an elderly. According to a previous KTRE report, Lufkin Police arrested James in September after investigating abuse against an 83-year-old resident of a Lufkin nursing home, where James worked as a nurse assistant. Witnesses told police they witnessed James twisting the woman's ear and pulling her hair, according to the affidavit. The witnesses said James told them, "the way you control this resident is to bend her thumb back to her wrist if she gets out of control." The two witnesses got the victim away from James and reported the abuse to the administrator.

* Joseph Weeks, 19, of Lufkin, for aggravated sexual assault. According to a previous report, Weeks is accused of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl, who was high on cough syrup. Hudson Police arrested Weeks in July.

* David Arthur Dunman, Jr., 51, of Lufkin, for possession of methamphetamines and possession of certain chemicals with intent to manufacture. Deputies with the Angelina County Sheriff's Office arrested Dunman in September following a two-year investigation into his alleged drug activity. Deputies say Dunman was considered one of the area's most prolific meth cooks, netting up to $50,000 a month.
