Lufkin Man Pleaded Guilty To Sexual Assault Charges, Now Awaiting Sentencing

by Jessica Cervantez

An Angelina County jury is now deciding the fate of a 24-year-old man who pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual assault of a child. The incident involves sexual contact with two then 15-year-old girls.

Charles Waldrep of Lufkin testified in court that one of those 15-year-olds was his girlfriend at the time and told him she was eighteen.

An emergency room nurse also testified. In a written statement, the nurse says the other girl told her that she and Waldrep's girlfriend snuck out of the house back in September of 2003, smoked marijuana, and went to Waldrep's home where he had sexual intercourse with both of them.

The defense is asking the jury to give Waldrep probation.
