A Lacy Lakeview man already in jail on charges of indecency with a child is now facing additional, more serious charges as investigators discover more potential victims and incidents of abuse.

Cody Delmar Gant had originally been booked into the McLennan County Jail on charges of indecency with a child by sexual contact and criminal solicitation of a minor on February 14 after an investigation by the Lacy Lakeview Police Department.

Police Chief John Truehitt said Thursday that as the investigtion continued and more forensic interviews were conducted,  additional charges of continuous sexual abuse of a young child or children were filed.

He says some of the allegations go back 11 years,  some go back five years and that there were numerous instances of alleged abuse of both boys and girls.

His original bond has now been boosted to a total of $80,000.
