A Raymondville man faces felony charges after having illegal sexual contact with a 16-year-old girl in early August.
Clayton R. Taylor, 30, of 199 Old Yukon Road, is held on $750,000 bond in the Texas County Jail. He is charged with first-degree sodomy or attempted sodomy.
According to a probable cause statement from the Texas County Sheriff’s Department, a woman called Aug. 11 to report that daughter was missing. When the deputy arrived at the woman’s home, the girl had returned home after being at Taylor’s home. She stated he had held her down and refused to let her go while touching her inappropriately.
She said Taylor also tried to get her to smoke marijuana with him.
The girl was taken to the Child Advocacy Center in West Plains and during an interview stated Taylor had held her down even when she repeatedly said “no.”
Taylor was interviewed at the sheriff’s department and reportedly admitted to touching the girl illegally.
