Jean, who is married and a manager with a temporary manual labor company, was charged with attempted aggravated sexual assault of a child and booked into the Hays County Jail on $150,000 bond.
Cracking down on sexual predators is a top priority of Attorney General Abbott’s administration. His Cyber Crimes and Fugitive units have arrested more than 320 sexual predators since he took office in December 2002. The Cyber Crimes Unit, which targets online predators, has made 64 arrests to date. The Fugitive Unit, which locates convicted child sex offenders who have violated the terms of their parole and could be stalking children, has arrested 223. In addition, the Fugitive Unit has arrested 35 unregistered sex offenders as part of Operation Missing Predator, a statewide initiative launched in April to locate and arrest convicted sex offenders who are not in compliance with sex offender registration requirements.
