LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - A retired Longview police officer was arrested Wednesday for aggravated sexual assault of a child.

The arrest affidavit says 69-year-old Leland Thomas Carver of Longview sexually assaulted the female victim, who is under 14 years old. The most recent assault allegedly occurred on December 28, 2013 at Carver's home in the 300 block of Montclair Street in Longview.

The affidavit goes on to say the alleged assault occurred over a period of several years. The girl told authorities that Carver told her not to tell anyone "because she would be taken away from her family and sent to a place where they send kids who are bad."

The victim also found "inappropriate" videos of herself undressing on a cell phone.

Carver remains in the Gregg County Jail on $50,000 bond.

Longview Police Officer Kristie Brian says Carver retired from the Longview Police Department over 10 years ago.
