CROCKETT, TX (KTRE) - A Crockett man is going to prison for allegedly molesting a 13-year-old girl last December.

A judge found Roy Earl Davis, 72, in violation of probation for a previous charge in an Aug. 31 hearing. Davis then agreed not to appeal the hearing if the state dropped a charge of indecency with a child, according to Houston County District Attorney Donna Kaspar.

Davis was serving probation on an aggravated assault charge. In the hearing, the state presented evidence on the indecency charge and the judge determined Davis had violated probation from that incident.

Davis allegedly molested the girl at a home on County Road 2015 during the early morning hours of Dec. 24. The girl immediately made an outcry to her mother and law enforcement.
