Additional charge pending against former band director

WINNSBORO, TX (KTLV) - The Winnsboro Police Department says they have filed a case against Paul Bramlett in the Wood County District Attorney's Office. Police say the charge of indecency with a child was filed against Bramlett in 2009.

On April 1st, Bramlett pleaded guilty in a Franklin County courtroom to sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child. As part of his plea bargain, Bramlett is serving 30 days in jail and has to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

Now that the cases in Franklin County are wrapped up, police say they're hoping the Wood County DA will prosecute Bramlett on the additional charge of indecency with a child.

In an interview Tuesday afternoon, Franklin County District Attorney Martin Braddy said he believes Bramlett has other victims, possibly in school districts he's previously worked in, that have not come forward.

Right now, Bramlett is serving his 30 day sentence in the Franklin County Jail. Braddy says after that he will be on probation for the next 10 years.
