      An East Texas minister is facing two felony charges, after accusations of sex crimes against children.   Kilgore police say it started with a phone call in June, from an angry mother of 3 young girls. Investigators say the girls confided in their mother that they had been sexually assaulted by someone that were familiar with: a Gladewater minister.

      Based on information given to police, 54 year old Larry Jackson was arrested Wednesday and charged with 2 first degree felony counts of sexual assault of a child , and one second degree felony indecency with a child. Police say Jackson has previously been a minister at Main Street Church of Christ. Although investigators are not revealing details of the arrest, they did tell us the case covers a ten year period.

    According to the Gregg County Sheriff's Department Jackson was released from jail earlier today, he faced a bond of about 135-thousand dollars. Police are now investigating whether there may be more victims from his past.
