Deputies with the Sabine County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 27-year-old man in connection to allegations that he touched an underage boy inappropriately on Feb.15.

Jacob Wilson turned himself into authorities after an arrest warrant was issued for him on Feb, 17. He was charged with felony indecency with a child charge. He was released from the Sabine County Jail Tuesday after he posted a bail amount of $20,000.

Chief Deputy George Griffith with the Sabine County Sheriff’s Office said the victim is under the age of 17. After the boy was allegedly touched inappropriately on Feb. 15, he told his mother, and they went to the sheriff’s office immediately to report it.

After authorities made contact with Wilson, he left town, Griffith said. However, after they contacted him on Feb. 17 to let him not that a warrant had been issued for his arrest, Wilson turned himself in, Griffith said.
