FAIRFIELD (August 10, 2012)—Freestone County pastor Anthony Lynn Thibodeaux, 36, of Mexia, was in the Freestone County Jail Friday afternoon after his arrest earlier in the day on warrants charging sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child.
Thibodeaux, who is pastor of the Fairfield Missionary Baptist Church in Freestone County and who also works for the State of Texas, was arrested early Friday afternoon in neighboring Limestone County, Freestone County Sheriff Ralph Billings said.
The arrest stems from an investigation that started about three weeks ago of allegations involving inappropriate sexual relations with a 15-year-old girl, Billings said.
Mexia police assisted in the investigation, which was headed by Freestone County Deputy Clayton Aldrich.
