Gregg County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a Longview man earlier this month in Oregon on a warrant charging him with having sex with an 11-year-old girl, according to court records.
Joseph Mitchell Wright, 33, remained in custody Friday on a $50,000 bond in Gregg County Jail on a warrant from the Gregg County District Clerk for the charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child, jail records show. The offense applies to children younger than 14.
The incident took place on or about March 21 at Wright’s home, according to the report. The girl was interviewed seven days later at the Martin House Children’s Advocacy Center, and a nurse examined her April 3.
Sheriff’s deputies arrested Wright on June 13 in Lane County, Oregon, a day after authorities there arrested him on a charge of being a fugitive. He was booked into Gregg County Jail on June 26.
