San Angelo Man Charged for Lewd Acts With a Child


SAN ANGELO, TX – Twenty-one year old Dylan Jupiter Carter has been arrested for the Sexual Assault of a Child after witnesses contacted authorities for the wellbeing of a minor after reports of a possible sexual assault. 

According to the affidavit, the defendant and the 14 year old victim had previously shared a relationship, but had been warned against it by family due to a difference in age. Initial reports state that the victim was staying at a witnesses house the evening prior to the assault taking place.

The following afternoon the victim left the residence on Sherwood Way around 1:30 p.m to meet up with the defendant. It was later discovered that the two drove to a different part of the property where the two engaged in sexual contact before returning to the residence.
