Former deputy's arrest prompts more allegations

MARSHALL, TX (KSLA) -

More legal trouble for a former East Texas Sheriff's Deputy - Eddie Nichols now faces an additional charge of sexual indecency with a child by contact.

Nichols, a former Harrison county deputy was arrested in September and charged with two counts of indecency with a child. That has prompted another alleged victim to come forward.

A woman tells investigators that back in 2002 when she was fifteen years old, Nichols let her swim at his house on several occasions. In the arrest warrant the woman states that after swimming, Nichols would bathe her while she was totally nude in the bath tub.

Investigators began questioning the woman after her former counselor came forward and told the authorities that she remembers a young girl under her care telling her that she spent a lot of time with Nichols and that the young girl felt uncomfortable. The counselor came forward after learning of Nichols initial arrest back in September.

The arrest warrant states that Nichols met the girl during her attempt to run away. Nichols was reportedly called to a vacant house where she was hiding. According to the warrant the two formed a relationship after the incident and Nichols wanted to be her role model.

Nichols was arrested and held on a $100,000.00 bond.

Harrison county DA, Coke Solomon confirmed the arrest, but declined to comment any further.
