Retired Texas Cop Arrested; Charged with Raping Girl for Years from Kindergarten
A former Harris County, Texas Precinct 3 captain is accused of sexual assault of a minor. On January 30, 2020 Jack Hagee, 74, was charged with felony indecency with a child and aggravated sexual assault of a child under 14 in connection with the sexual assault of a young girl dating back in 1989 when he was a cop, according to court records.
According to court documents, a 38-year-old woman came forward recently and reported to authorities that Hagee began touching her inappropriately and exposing himself to her in 1989 when she was about 4 or 5 years old.
Hagee is the brother of mega church Pastor John Hagee in San Antonio, Texas.
According to News 4 San Antonio, the woman claimed Hagee touched her inappropriately, made her perform oral sex on him and, by the time she was in kindergarten, the two engaged in sexual intercourse multiple times a week until she began menstruating at the age of 13, court documents show. The victim says the encounters turned into a full-on sexual relationship.
Hagee was between the ages of 43 and 51 at the time of the offenses, cops say. The victim confided in a relative about the abuse in 2020. Authorities wrote in an affidavit that they spoke with the relative, who told investigators that she told Jack Hagee's brother, about the allegations.
Records show police interviewed two witnesses, one of which was Hagee’s brother Pastor John Hagee. The pastor told authorities that Hagee confessed the assault to him, according to court records.
Upon Hagee's arrest a judge signed an emergency protection order barring Hagee from leaving Texas, going near schools or having contact with the victim and her family. The judge set his bond at a total of $65,000 -- $40,000 for the aggravated assault charge and $25,000 for the indecency charge.
