WACO - A convicted sex offender is facing new allegations of sexual assault involving several young children in Waco and Bellmead.
Jack Edward Stone, 49, is currently being held in the McLennan County Jail without bond. He's facing charges of indecency with a child by contact and failing to comply with sex offender registration requirements.
According to police documents, Stone abused three different children on two separate days in June, 2012.
Waco arrest affidavits detail the disturbing abuse of two young brothers at a South Waco home in mid-June. Waco Police Sergeant Patrick Swanton said both victims were under the age of eight, and one was just a toddler.
The documents show how "tickling" reportedly turned to inappropriate, sexual touching of both boys. According to Sgt. Patrick Swanton, the boys made an outcry to their mother who then contacted Waco Police.
"People like [Stone]- we need to keep an eye on [them]," said Sgt. Swanton. "As neighbors and as the public, we need to know where those offenders are."
Just days before the Waco incident, Stone allegedly sexually assaulted a four year-old girl at home in Bellmead. Bellmead Police Detective Michael Miller said officers arrested Stone on those charges in July, but he bonded out of jail.
Police documents reveal that Stone admitted to a Bellmead police detective he "[placed] his hands under the clothes of the victim," but he stated that any inappropriate touching "was by accident."
According to DPS crime records, Jack Edward Stone served ten years in prison after he was convicted of sexually abusing a child in 1988. His victim was reportedly just three years-old.
In addition to the latest sex abuse allegations, Stone is now facing charges for failing to comply with sex offender registration requirements. Spokesmen for Bellmead and Waco police departments said Stone didn't report to authorities when he got a new job. All sex offenders are required to provide updated employment information by law.
