LIVINGSTON, TX (KTRE) -

Livingston Police officers arrested a 19-year-old man on Thursday for sexual assault of a child after they went to check out a criminal trespass report and found that he allegedly had consensual sex with a 15-year-old girl at the residence.

Kionte Kilon Card, of Livingston, is still being held in the Polk County Jail on a second-degree sexual assault of a child. His bail was set at $50,000.

According to a press release, officers with the Livingston Police Department were dispatched to a house in the 300 block of Liberty on April 26 in reference to a criminal trespass report. They found several people in the home, but they all had permission to be there.

While the LPD officers were interviewing the people in the house, they learned that a 15-year-old girl allegedly had consensual sex with Card.

"Due to the age difference of the two involved, a criminal investigation was initiated for sexual assault of a child," the press release stated.

According to Texas law, a minor under the age of 17 cannot legally give consent to have sex.
