Jerry Belton Drexler, 44, of Yoakum, was arrested and charged with felony sexual assault of a child on Tuesday.
Drexler was accused of having sexual contact with a child younger than 14 years old, and he was arrested by Sgt. Santos Calderon of the DeWitt County Sheriff's Office.
Drexler is being held in the DeWitt County Detention Center with a bond of $175,000 set by Justice of the Peace Bill Robinson.
If found guilty of the charge, he will face a minimum of 25 to 99 years in prison because of the age of the victim, said DeWitt County Sheriff Jode Zavesky.
