A Raymondville man is held on $750,000 bond in the Texas County Jail after allegedly having illegal sexual contact with a 16-year-old girl in early August.

Charged with first-degree sodomy or attempted sodomy is Clayton R. Taylor, 30, of 199 Old Yukon Road at Raymondville.

Authorities said a woman called the agency Aug. 11 to report that her daughter was missing. When the deputy arrived at the woman’s home, the girl had returned home after being at Taylor’s home, and stated he had held her down and refused to let her go while touching her inappropriately.

She also claimed Taylor 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 used force to hold her down when she repeatedly said “no.”

Taylor pled not guilty during a court appearance and a trialsetting date was on the docket for Tuesday of this week.
