SAN AUGUSTINE COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - The San Augustine County Sheriff's Office has charged a man who is accused of molesting and exposing himself to a girl who was 14 at the time of the offenses.

Jonathan Dees, 24, is charged with one count of third-degree indecency with a child by exposure, one count of second-degree indecency with a child by contact and two counts of second-degree sexual assault.

Chief Deputy Gary Cunningham said the girl was being treated at an emergency room on Sept. 8 when it was revealed she was sexually assaulted by an adult.

Cunningham said the investigating deputy has worked a lot of consecutive hours on the case and gathered enough information to get warrants for his arrest.

He said Dees has not confessed to the crime and that the sheriff's office is still gathering witness statements. More charges may be coming.
