Bexar Co. Sheriff’s Office employee arrested for child sex assault warrant


BEXAR COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — On Thursday, deputies from the Bexar County Sheriff’s Fugitives Apprehension Unit placed into custody one of the office’s employees on a warrant for aggravated sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child by contact.

Jose Angel Laines, 44, has worked for the office since 2004, most recently as a member of the Records department. 

Sheriff Javier Salazar responded to the incident, saying: “The disturbing allegations against this 14-year employee go back to at least a decade. We are glad our Warrants team was able to get him into custody. We have already initiated termination proceedings and we stand ready to assist SAPD with whatever they may need.”

Laines will be immediately placed out on unpaid administrative leave.  

His bonds for each charge are $75,000.
