A Killeen man is behind bars Monday after police charged him with prohibited sexual conduct on Thursday.
Juan Jose Hernandez, 46, was booked into the Bell County Jail on Thursday on a charge of prohibited sexual conduct, according to an arrest affidavit, after a relative came forward with an accusation of an ongoing decade-long sexual assault.
On March 30, Killeen police officers responded to the 4500 block of Indigo Drive to investigate a case of prohibited sexual conduct.
A woman told officers Juan Hernandez had “sexual intercourse with her that day,” according to the arrest affidavit.
“Juan Hernandez stated that he was going to give her a spanking,” the arrest affidavit states.
Instead, Hernandez allegedly had sex with the woman, police said.
Police recovered the woman’s clothes and other evidence from a trash can, according to the affidavit.
“(The woman) further stated that Juan Hernandez began sexually abusing her around the time she was 8 years old,” according to the affidavit. “She stated that the sexual abuse continued from the time she was 8 years old until March 30, 2021. She stated that Juan Hernandez sexually abused her approximately once a month, every month since she was 8 years old.”
Police also are investigating a separate account of sexual assault of a minor who also lives at the residence.
Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke set Hernandez’s bond at $250,000 Thursday for the third-degree felony.
