Two arrested on child sexual assault charges

PARKER COUNTY — Editor’s note: The details in this story may be disturbing for some readers.

The Parker County Sheriff’s Office arrested two men during the past week on charges they sexually assaulted young girls.

Clint Dean Garrett, 30, of Springtown, was arrested Monday on a warrant for continuous sexual abuse of a child under 14 years old, a first degree felony, and, as of Wednesday, was being held in the Parker County Jail on $50,000 bond.  

Two girls, now 11 and 9 years old, told investigators on June 7 that Garrett, a relative, repeatedly sexually assaulted them over a period of several years, according to the arrest warrant affidavit filed with Precinct 2 Justice of Peace Kelly Green.

The oldest told investigators that she doesn’t remember the first time Garrett inappropriately touched her but that the last time was when she was 11 years old and he did so as she watched the Simpsons’ movie.

She also said she remembered an earlier incident at a house Garrett lived in during 2009 when she woke up after falling asleep on the couch and found Garrett naked. He began rubbing himself on and in her until she told him to stop, the girl reportedly said.  

On another occasion, he forced her to perform oral sex on him, threatening that he would rape her if she didn’t and it would hurt worse, she reportedly said during the interview.

The youngest reportedly told investigators that he “only did it sometimes” but that when he touched her private parts, “it made her feel gross and she does not like to remember it.”

Garrett denied the allegations and blamed them on the girls’ mother, according to the affidavit.

Jamie L. Ford, 28, of Springtown, was arrested Friday on two warrants for aggravated sexual assault of a child, a first degree felony, and, as of Wednesday, was being held on $100,000 bond.

On Aug. 16, a 9-year-old girl told investigators that Ford had sexually assaulted her sometime in June.

Ford reportedly told her to undress and lie on the bed so he could check her for “bumps and bruises.” However, he covered her face with a blanket and pillows and began fondling and assaulting her before raping her, according to the affidavit.

The girl told investigators she told him it hurt and he stopped for a short time before raping her again.
