Suspect accused of stalking realtor, sending pornographic images indicted

SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - A man who is accused of stalking an East Texas real estate agent has now been indicted.

Danny Lafaitt, 44, of Whitehouse, was indicted June 7 in the 7th Judicial District Court of Smith County. Lafaitt is charged with one count of stalking.

He was arrested on April 9 by Smith County Sheriff's Office deputies.

According to an arrest affidavit, the realtor filed a report with the sheriff's office on Feb. 2 saying Lafaitt had come to her office as she was leaving and asked about real estate.

She told officials she had a bad feeling about the encounter, but gave him her card to contact her later.

The affidavit alleges that Lafaitt went to her office on Dec. 19 to see her and became violent when he was not allowed to speak with her. He allegedly struck one of the woman's co-workers with a disk tray and eventually was issued a criminal trespass warning.

Soon after that, the realtor said that she was contacted by someone with a different name asking about a property. That person later began sending pornographic images and began making sexual advances through email.

A search warrant on the pseudonym's Facebook account showed it belonged to Lafaitt.

He was later arrested and booked into the Smith County Jail.
