ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Deputies with the Angelina County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 21-year-old Zavalla man Wednesday in connection to allegations that he had nude pictures of a 14-year-old boy he is accused of sexually assaulting in August of 2016.

An Angelina County grand jury indicted Austin Jacob McGee Husband for four counts of sexual assault of a child in connection back in January for having an ongoing sexual relationship with the 14-year-old boy.

Husband was booked into the Angelina County Jail on a third-degree felony possession of child pornography on Wednesday. He was released from the jail later that day after he posted a bail amount of $7,500.

According to the arrest affidavit, the victim’s father went to the Angelina County Sheriff’s Office on Aug. 8, 2016, to report that Husband had sexually assaulted his 14-year-old son 

An ACSO detective scheduled appointments for the alleged victim and his brother at Harold’s House in Lufkin on Aug. 9 and observed their forensic interviews. 

The 14-year-old victim said during his interview that Husband had sexual intercourse with him on numerous occasions, the affidavit stated. When the victim’s 15-year-old brother was interviewed, he allegedly said he knew about the sexual relationship because Husband had come to him and told him that he and the boy’s brother were having sexual intercourse.

On the next day, authorities executed a search warrant on Husband’s home on Johnson Street in Zavalla. Once Husband was taken into custody, he admitted to having sex with the victim, the affidavit stated.

Husband also allegedly admitted to having child pornography in the form of nude pictures of the victim on his cell phone. After the sheriff’s office obtained a warrant for the device, it was seized as evidence and sent to the North Texas Regional Computer Forensic Laboratory for data extraction.

When the ACSO detective got the digital devices, the report, and a disc back from the lab, he saw the images that had been on Husband’s phone. The pictures were nude images of the alleged sexual assault of a child victim, the affidavit stated.
