SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - Retired Tyler pharmacist James Carey Prosperie, charged with sexually assaulting a child under 17, appeared in court on Thursday.

Prosperie's attorney Robert Perkins appeared before Judge Jack Skeen, Jr., and said he would enter an open plea on two of the four counts against Prosperie.

Those four charges are one count of sexual assault of a child and three counts of indecency with a child/sexual contact. Prosperie will again appear in court on Monday, April 14 at 9 a.m. for a docket call.

Prosperie, according to an affidavit, sexually assaulted a girl under the age of 17 multiple times during her 2013 summer break. Prosperie was arrested in September of 2013 following a stand-off with police at his Tyler residence.
 
Court documents reveal that the girl told Prosperie's wife that he was sexually assaulting her. Prosperie's wife informed the victim's parents who then filed a police report.

After a standoff with police at his home, Prosperie was arrested on September 3.
