Copperas Cove man arrested for molesting two young girls

COPPERAS COVE, TX (KXXV) -

A Coryell County man is accused of molesting two young girls and showing one of the girls pornography.

Jason Wade Pruitt has been charged with continuous sexual abuse of a young child, aggravated sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child.

A woman reported to the Copperas Cove Police Department that Jason Pruitt molested her daughter. The girl told her mother that Pruitt had touched her inappropriately.

The girl was interviewed by a forensic interviewer at the Children's Advocacy Center in Belton. During the interview, the girl said that she was at Pruitt's house located in the 1200 block of #A Phil in Copperas Cove.

The girl said Pruitt had put his hand underneath her clothing and had touched her inappropriately. The girl said Pruitt had done this on several different occasions and possibly more than ten times.

Another girl told her neighbor and counselor back in October 2012 that Pruitt had shown her pornography and molested her. The girl said Pruitt had been touching her since she was is the 2nd or 3rd grade.

During an interview at the Central Texas Children's Advocacy Center in October 2012, the girl said Pruitt touched her breast with his hands and did other sexual things to her. The girl was 11-years-old at the time of the interview.

Pruitt was arrested for the 2012 report and the other charges were added the day after he was arrested.
