HAMILTON, Texas (KWTX) A 70-year-old Hamilton County man accused of raping a mentally disabled woman seven times over the course of about two years is free on bond after he was charged with sexual assault.

Hamilton County Justice of the Peace James Lively who issued the arrest warrant for Loyd Daniel Woolsey recommended a $50,000 bond, but Justice of the Peace Kim Avants in neighboring Mills County, where Woolsey was jailed, set bail at $25,000.

Woolsey was warned to have no contact with the alleged victim.

Hamilton County deputies arrested Woolsey Saturday in Carlton in the northern part of the county after an investigation that started on June 6 when the victim made an outcry of sexual abuse while at the Stephenville Medical Surgical Center, an arrest affidavit released Tuesday says.

The victim told deputies she was raped seven times and that she went to the clinic because she believes she is pregnant, the affidavit says.

Woolsey later admitted to investigators that “he had numerous sexual acts” with the victim, the affidavit says.
