DIBOLL, TX (KTRE) - Diboll Police officers arrested a 25-year-old man on Thursday in connection to allegations that he molested a 7-year-old girl while they were watching a movie.
Jacorie Jamile Mitchell, of Diboll, is still being held in the Angelina County Jail on a second-degree felony charge of indecency with a child by sexual contact. His bail has been set at $40,000.
According to the arrest affidavit, the alleged victim made an outcry on April 21. She spoke to a Diboll Police detective and said that the incident happened in April 2006 when she was at a relative's house on White Oak Street.
The girl told the Diboll PD detective that she, her relative, and Mitchell were at the home watching a movie together. At one point, the relative left the room, and Mitchell moved closer to her and touched her inappropriately.
According to the affidavit, the victim told Mitchell to stop, but he refused. As a result, she got up and left the room.
Mitchell failed a polygraph test, the affidavit stated. Later, a Diboll Police detective interviewed him about the case and the polygraph results. During the interview, Mitchell allegedly admitted to touching the girl, but did not give any additional details.
