Lufkin Police officers arrested the 19-year-old man accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl at a local hotel back in June on a second, unrelated sexual assault charge in connection to an Oct. 9 sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl.

Jekson Jobiay Turcios, of Lufkin, was booked into the Angelina County Jail Wednesday on a first-degree felony charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child. No bail has been set at this time.

According to the arrest affidavit for the second charge, Lufkin Police officers went to Turcios' home in the 400 block of Paul Avenue on Oct. 9 to serve the warrant for the first sexual assault. When they got there, they found the second victim, a 13-year-old girl at the residence.

The victim, identified in the affidavit as "Jane Doe," was interviewed at Harold's House in Lufkin. During the recorded interview, the girl said that she had been at Turcios' house in the early morning hours of Oct. 9 and that she had sex with him.

Later, Lufkin Police officers interviewed Turcios. During the interview, Turcios said he had sexual intercourse with Jane Doe on Oct. 9. He also allegedly told them that over the course of the previous two months, he had sex with the girl on three to five occasions.

Turcios told police that he knew the victim was 13 years old after the third time he had sex with her, according to the affidavit.

In the state of Texas, a child under the age of 17 cannot legally consent to have sex.

The other sexual assault that Turcios is accused of committing took place on June 28. At that time, he allegedly had sex with a 14-year-old girl at a local hotel with three minor girls and at least one adult in the room with them at the same time.

In all, seven people were staying in the room. The alleged sexual assault occurred at the Courtyard Marriott Hotel on South First Street.

Turcios was booked into the Angelina County Jail on the first second-degree felony sexual assault charge and three misdemeanor charges on Oct. 9. He posted a collective attorney bail of $51,081 and was released from jail six days later.

According to the arrest affidavit, the victim, the three girls, and the two adults were taken to Harold's House in Lufkin for forensic interviews. The girl admitted to having sex with Turcios, according to the arrest affidavit, and the three minors and the adult also said they saw Turcios and the victim engage in sexual acts.
