LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A 43-year-old Huntington man who is accused of sexually assaulting a mentally challenged 15-year-old girl in the summer of 2014 was among the 85 people indicted by an Angelina grand jury earlier this month.
KTRE News obtained the list of grand jury indictments Wednesday morning.
Michael Wayne Gibson was indicted on a first-degree felony aggravated sexual assault of a child charge and a felony indecency with a child charge. Collectively, his bail has been set at $150,000.
According to the arrest affidavit, the girl's mother made the initial outcry to the Hudson Police Department after the victim told her mother that Gibson had sexually assaulted her. Later, the girl was brought to Harold's House in Lufkin for a forensic interview.
The victim and her mother both told the forensic interview that the girl is mentally challenged and is at the level of a 10-year-old instead of 15.
The grand jury also indicted Howard David Frazier, 43, Norphlet, Arkansas, on two felony sexual assault of a child charges and one felony indecency with a child charge in connection to allegations that he sexually assaulted a girl under the age of 14 several times over a period of time.
Frazier was originally arrested for first-degree felony continuous sexual assault of a child.
According to a previous East Texas News story, initial outcry about the alleged sexual assault was made on Dec. 1, 2014. According to the affidavit, the girl was brought in to Lufkin's Harold's House for a forensic interview, in which she described what had been done to her.
In addition, a SANE exam revealed evidence that backed up the victim's story, the affidavit stated.
When investigators reviewed Frazier's criminal history, they found that he is a lifetime registered sex offender.
According to the Texas Department of Public Safety's Sex Offender Database, Frazier was convicted on a sexual assault of a child charge in 1996 and sentenced to five years in prison. The victim was a 15-year-old girl, the DPS database stated.
He was transported back to Angelina County and booked into the jail Thursday morning.
Also among those indicted was Marvin Anselmo Fraser, 46, of Lufkin. Fraser was indicted for two felony charges - cruelty to non-livestock animals and tampering with evidence.
Fraser's charges were in connection to allegations that he shot and killed his neighbor's 10-month-old husky puppy and dumped the dog's body at another location to hide what he had done in July of 2014
Debbie Wells, 32, of Lufkin, was indicted on a felony injury to elderly or disabled charge in connection to allegations that she picked up a stool and whacked a disabled veteran with a stool after he tried to break up a fight she got into with her twin sister in December 2013.
