Yantis Man Arrested on Criminal Solicitation Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child



Sunday night, Hopkins County Criminal Investigators and deputies arrested Justin Dean Cowart, 31, of Yantis, for Attempted Human Trafficking and Criminal Solicitation Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child.

The arrest at a local discount box store came following a law enforcement response to the guardian of a child. The guardian had met Cowart on line and had been communicating with him. Cowart became interested in the child of the guardian. Ultimately, Cowart stated online that he wanted to purchase sex acts with the minor.  That is when the Hopkins County Sheriff’s office was called. An officer assumed the role of the guardian in the online conversations which brought about the meeting with Cowart in Sulphur Springs at the site of the arrest.

Justin Dean Cowart, 31, is in Hopkins County Jail charged with Attempted Human Traffic Child Engage Conduct/Sexual and Criminal Solicitation Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child.
