NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - The Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office is charging a man accused of sexually assaulting a woman nearly six years ago.
Robert Russell Smith, 30, of Nacogdoches is charged with second-degree sexual assault.
Sheriff Thomas Kerss said Tennessee authorities contacted his office in January when a woman said Smith sexually assaulted her in Nacogdoches County when she was 17.
Kerss said the woman made the outcry after another family member made a similar outcry about Smith. That assault happened in another jurisdiction, Kerss said.
Kerss said the consistency of the testimonies, combined with Smith confessing to family members was enough to obtain a warrant for Smith's arrest.
