LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A Lufkin man who allegedly forced two teenage girls, ages 17 and 15, to use methamphetamine before he sexually assaulted them was one of the 66 people recently indicted by an Angelina County grand jury.
Brandon Lee Pipkin is still being held in the Angelina County Jail on two first-degree felony sexual assault of a child charges, two second-degree felony delivery of a controlled substance to a minor charges, a third-degree felony possession of a controlled substance charge, and two revocation of probation charges for theft. Collectively, Pipkin's bail has been set at $525,000.
Pipkin was booked into the Angelina County Jail on Dec. 2, 2014 after he was arrested by Angelina County Sheriff's Office deputies.
According to the arrest affidavit, members of the ACSO Criminal Investigation Division were notified of a 911 call in which a 17-year-old girl told the dispatcher that she had been drugged and sexually assaulted by Pipkin.
The girl told the dispatcher that Pipkin had forced her to take meth and then sexually assaulted her. When the ACSO investigators spoke to the girl and another 15-year-old girl that had been at the same location said they would either smoke the meth or snort the substance in its powdered form, the affidavit stated.
Both girls allegedly told the investigators that Pipkin had told them on numerous occasions how sexually aroused he got when he was high on the meth. The 17-year-old girl also told the investigators that on Nov. 30, she and Pipken snorted meth, and she passed out, the affidavit stated.
The 17-year-old victim explained that she was wearing less clothing than she had been when she passed out. She also told the ACSO investigators that even though "everything that had occurred was extremely blurry," she remembered having sexual intercourse with Pipkin, the affidavit stated.
According to the affidavit, the 15-year-old girl told investigators that sometime during the week of Thanksgiving, she snorted meth with Pipkin, the affidavit stated. She said she was intoxicated enough that her body felt "very heavy and weak." At that point, the girl laid in the bed with Pipkin, and he allegedly began touching her inappropriately over and under her clothes.
A SANE exam conducted on the 17-year-old victim revealed that she had injuries consistent with recent sexual intercourse, the affidavit stated. In addition, a toxicology test taken on the day she made the 911 call revealed that she had methamphetamine in her system, according to the affidavit.
