Friday, Justice of the Peace B. J. Teer held a magistrates hearing for James Hunter Dixon, 20, who was entered into Hopkins County. A total of $925,000 in bond was imposed on Dixon based on an 8th Judicial District request.
Dixon was first arrested May 28th at the Hopkins County Sheriff’s Department for aggravated sexual assault and continuous sexual assault of two girls under the age of ten. Additional charges for sexual assault of a child, male, were added in June. His bond at that time totaled $2.4 million
Sheriff’s Criminal Investigator Dennis Findley said the sheriff’s office was made aware of the first two cases on Tuesday, May 26th after an outcry by the two female victims made to their biological father. The male made his outcry this week to his stepfather.
All three children were interviewed at the Child Advocacy Center in Winnsboro where specially trained Child Protective Services employees conduct such interviews for the area.
Chief criminal Investigator Lewis Tatum told KSST news the incidents had been occurring over several months beginning sometime last year.
