Two East Texas Prison Guards Are Accused Of Sexual Assault

Two East Texas prison guards are accused of sexually assaulting a girl in an alleged off-duty incident that was video-taped.

Thirty-six-year-old Lieutenant Jose Cantu of Woodville and 34-year-old officer Eduardo Hernandez are charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child, and sexual performance of a child.

Investigators believe the alleged abuse may have been going on for as long as two years. The girl is now 12. Both Cantu and Hernandez worked as guards at the Gib Lewis unit near Woodville. Investigators say the girl's mother discovered the videotape on Friday, leading to the arrests.
