GEORGETOWN, Texas (AP) - A Georgetown police officer has been indicted on charges of sexually assaulting a woman at gunpoint while he was on duty.
Jimmy Lewis Fennell Jr. is being held in the Williamson County Jail with bail set at $250,000.
A Williamson County grand jury indicted Fennell Tuesday on felony charges of aggravated sexual assault, aggravated kidnapping and improper sexual activity with a person in custody. He was also charged with official oppression.
