SABINE COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - A Pineland man already jailed on three child sex crimes has two more now after authorities filed new charges this week.

Bobby Dean Elliott, 47, was being held in the Sabine County Jail on two sexual assault of a child charges and a charge of indecency with a child.

The charges came after a 15-year-old girl made an outcry and said Elliott sexually assaulted her.

This week, Pineland police and the sheriff's office filed separate charges of aggravated sexual assault of a child.

His bond is now set at a collective $700,000.

Sheriff Tom Maddox said more charges are pending.
