NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Deputies with the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office arrested a 56-year-old man Monday in connection to allegations that he molested an underage girl in the summer of 2016.
Encarnacion Olivarez, of Nacogdoches, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on a third-degree felony indecency with a child by sexual contact charge. No bail amount has been set for the charge yet.
According to the arrest affidavit, an NCSO sergeant was contacted by someone with Child Protective Services, who told him that a child in their care at Harold's House had made an outcry to one of her teachers at Mike Moses Middle School. The girl told the forensic interview that Olivarez had touched her inappropriately.
The NCSO sergeant spoke to the girl to get a better idea of what she meant, and she said that during the 2016 summer vacation, Olivarez grabbed her and took her into a bedroom, where he put his hand under her clothes and touched her private parts, the affidavit stated.
When the NCSO sergeant interviewed Olivarez, the man denied ever touching the girl inappropriately, the affidavit stated. However, Olivarez later admitted to touching the girl inappropriately two years ago.
