TYLER, TX (KLTV) -
A retired East Texas pharmacist pleaded guilty to sexual assault of a child on Monday and will be sentenced on May 8th.
According to an arrest warrant affidavit, 74-year-old James Carey Prosperie sexually assaulted a girl under the age of 17 multiple times during summer break. Prosperie was arrested on Tuesday following a stand-off with police at his Tyler residence.
In a forensic interview, the victim told police Prosperie made her participate in sexual acts, beginning a couple of weeks after school let out for summer.
According to the arrest warrant affidavit, Prosperie's wife saw her husband "whispering and smiling" at the girl. His wife told investigators "she had a bad feeling about what she saw."
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.
The arrest warrant affidavit states that James Prosperie refused to speak with Tyler Police investigators. However, a CPS report states that Prosperie "confessed to a lawyer/friend that he has had 'sexual contact' with [the girl] on at least two separate occasions."
