Former Grapeland City Councilman indicted for child sex crimes

HOUSTON COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Months after being arrested for numerous child sex crimes, Aaron Pennington is formally indicted by a Houston County Grand Jury.

In April, Grapeland police arrested the former Grapeland City Councilman for possession of child porn.

The state attorney general's office cyber crimes unit joined the investigation.

While out on bail, just two weeks later, Pennington was re-arrested for additional child porn charges and for the sexual assault of a teenage boy.

The list of indictments include three counts of possession of child porn, one count of promotion of child porn and one count of sexual assault of a child.
