Livingston ISD ROTC head also charged with aggravated sexual assault of child

LIVINGSTON, TX (KTRE) - Law enforcement officials have added a second charge to the head of Livingston ISD's ROTC program, who was arrested last week on allegations that he had an improper relationship with an LISD student, a 14-year-old girl.

The Livingston Municipal Court issued an arrest warrant for aggravated sexual assault of a child for Herbert Nelson Lloyd late last week.

Lloyd, 58, of Livingston, is still being held in the Polk County Jail on two felony charges - indecency with a child by sexual contact and aggravated sexual assault of a child. Collectively, his bail has been set at $600,000.

East Texas News obtained a copy of the arrest affidavit for the indecency with a child charge.

"Polk County Sheriff's Office received information or a tip from CPS that an employee of LISD was having inappropriate relations, or contact with a 14-year-old student," said Lt. Matt Parrish, with the Livingston Police Department.

According to the Livingston Police Department, the allegations date back to January, and the incidents occurred on more than one Livingston ISD campus.

The affidavit stated that a Livingston PD detective went to Childrenz Haven to observe a forensic interview with the 14-year-old alleged victim. The alleged victim said during the interview that she had been in a relationship with Lloyd, and it started back in January.

During the forensic interview, the girl said that she had kissed Lloyd several times in the past and that during one of the incidents, Lloyd touched her on the breast with an open hand, the affidavit stated. In the affidavit, the detective said that he saw text messages between Lloyd and the girl that were pornographic in nature.

Monday morning, Lt. Matt Parrish with the Livingston Police Department said that the second charge was added on June 8 because during a follow-up interview with the girl, it was alleged that she and Lloyd had sexual intercourse at one point, the affidavit stated.

In the state of Texas, a child under the age of 17 cannot legally give consent to have sex.
