MARLIN, Texas (KWTX) The former police chief of Rosebud, Quincy Lee, is free on a $25,000 bond after he was indicted on a sexual assault of a child charge.

Lee turned himself in Sunday morning and was released after posting bond.

The indictment stemmed from a Texas Rangers investigation.

In March Lee was arrested on a warrant charging sexual assault and was later released after posting a $20,000 bond.

Lee resigned as Rosebud police chief in August 2017 after he first was accused of harassment following a complaint about which the Rosebud City Council met on July 31.

In an affidavit submitted for the warrant issued by Falls County Justice of the Peace Jack Smith a Texas Ranger reported he began investigating Lee on the sexual assault charge on June 1, 2017 after a woman reported she had been sexually assaulted over a period of months.

The affidavit says the victim, who at the time was on probation, was threatened with having her probation revoked if she refused to have sex with Lee.

The victim told a Texas Ranger investigator that the assaults began in September 2014 and continued through 2015.

The affidavit details how she was locked in the police chief’s office and forced to have sex on the chief’s desk.

“I’d have to (have sex) with him not to get in trouble with my probation,” the affidavit says.

In his resignation letter submitted to Rosebud City Council Lee said: "It has been my honor to service (sic) as Chief of Police of the Rosebud Police Department," Lee wrote.

"I am resigning my employment and ask that it become (effective) upon submission and receipt and that any minimum notice requirement be waived," Lee wrote.

"Well, it's just one of those things that happens you know. People make choices. Choices have consequences and when those consequences come about you look at the decision you made and go from there. It's a part of life," City Administrator Keith Whitfield said at the time.
