ABILENE, Texas - An Abilene man who was already in jail for child sex crimes was indicted for molesting a 12-year-old girl in 2015.
David Lee Longman, 23, was indicted for continuous sexual abuse of a child.
Court documents say Longman touched the girl inappropriately on at least three separate occasions.
Documents say the girl told family members about the abuse, but they didn't believe her. A detective with the Abilene Police Department made contact with the victim and learned about the abuse. It allegedly happened between May 2015 and May 2016.
But it's not the only child sex charge Longman faces in Taylor County. He was booked into the Taylor County Jail on April 20 for multiple charges of sexual assault of a child and online solicitation of a minor. Those occurred in August 2016 and April 2017.
Court documents say Longman used online communication applications like Snapchat and KIK to find underage victims.
“Longman preys on children by pretending to be an underage male, then asking young children to send him obscene photos,” an Abilene Police Department news release stated. “The investigation has revealed that Longman has met with and assaulted multiple victims after beginning an online relationship."
Longman is still in jail on bonds totaling $440,000.
