JACINTO CITY, Texas -- A Houston-area police officer has been accused of propositioning a 13-year-old girl whose family sought his help.
Jacinto City police Capt. Thomas Harmon DeMont has been charged with indecency with a child.
The 49-year-old DeMont was arrested Wednesday, with bond set at $50,000. Fort Bend County Jail records Thursday indicated DeMont is no longer in custody.
A woman in April allegedly asked DeMont for help because her daughter had trouble in school. A criminal complaint says DeMont met the girl at the home of one of her relatives, allegedly exposed himself and asked her to perform a sex act.
The teen fled and said DeMont threatened to kill her family if she complained.
No publicly listed phone number could immediately be located for DeMont, who s on administrative leave with pay.
