SABINE COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

A Sabine County grand jury indicted a 47-year-old Pineland man on five charges of aggravated sexual assault of a child, one indecency with a child charge, and one prohibited sexual conduct. All seven of the charges are felonies, and they date back to 1990.

Bobby Dean Elliott is still being held in the Sabine County Jail. Collectively, his bail has been set at $1.1 million.

According to the text of one of the indictments, Elliott is accused of molesting a girl under the age of 14 numerous times from Dec. 13, 1995 to Dec. 12, 2001. Another of the indictments alleges that Elliott sexually assaulted a girl under the age of 14 on multiple occasions from December 1990 to Dec. 12, 1995.

Another of the aggravated sexual assault of a child indictments states that Elliott molested a girl from Nov. 14, 1998 to Nov. 13, 2004. The fourth aggravated sexual assault of a child charge gives a date range of March 24 to March 23 2010, and the fifth one gives a date range of May 19 to May 19, 2014.

The indictment for the prohibited sexual conduct alleges that offense occurred between Dec. 13, 1990 and Dec. 12, 1995. According to the indecency with a child indictment, Elliott is accused of inappropriately touching a young girl in a period from May 13, 2002 to May 12, 2003.

Deputies with the Sabine County Sheriff’s Office arrested Elliott back in June after a now-15-year-old girl made an outcry and said that Elliott had sexually assaulted her.
