Texas County Sheriff James Sigman said anyone who has been sexually assaulted or victimized needs to share their story with someone they trust.


Sigman encouraged victims to speak up by telling a law enforcement officer, school personnel or family member what happened.

“You should tell someone trustworthy,” Sigman said. “(Victims) need to know there is help.”

To contact authorities, call 911, the Texas County Sheriff’s Department at 417-967-4165 or Houston Police Department at 417-967-3348.
