HUTTO (KXAN) - A man who works as a correctional officer at the Williamson County Jail is charged with sexually assaulting a teenage girl at his home last week.
According to the arrest affidavit, Joe Flores, 33, had provided alcohol to two under-age girls last Friday night. One of the girls had fallen asleep, and the other was dozing off when Flores carried the 14-year-old to his bedroom and sexually assaulted her, the document says.
The girl's parents later took her to the hospital for an examination that confirmed injuries commonly found with sexual assault victims. Police were notified and and were given access to the girl's cell phone. The phone had a text message from Flores asking her not to report the matter, the affidavit said.
The girl's mother also spoke by phone with Flores in what police called "a controlled phone call." Flores, according to the affidavit, acknowledged providing alcohol, but said the girl initiated sexual activity. He denied having sex with the girl.
Flores is charged with sexual assault, a second-degree felony. He is on administrative leave with the sheriff's office.
