A Madison County man is facing serious jail time after being accused of sexually assaulting a child. Although the investigation has been going on for six months -- the Madison County Sheriff's office says the assaults began several years ago.
Madison County Sheriff Travis Neeley says 44-year-old Larry Randall Steele of Madisonville is charged with one count of aggravated sexual assault and two counts of indecency and sexual contact with a child. His recent arrest stems from a months-long investigation involving the alleged sexual assault of a child. Indictments were handed down after a joint investigation by the Texas Rangers and the Madison County Sheriff's Office. Steele remains in the Madison County Jail awaiting trial.
