Pecan Plantation man arrested for sexual assault of a child


Pecan Plantation resident William Lyle Morrison, 43, was arrested for aggravated sexual assault of a child and various child pornography charges on Wednesday.

The investigation began after the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children tipped off the Hood County Crimes Against Children Task Force that there had been several internet uploads that included child pornography from an address in Pecan Plantation, said District Attorney Rob Christian. Task force investigators found a child in the home who made an outcry of sexual abuse against Morrison, Christian said.

Morrison is now in the Hood County Jail on a bond of more than $1.1 million.
